This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

At the suggestion of many Subscribers to the original quarterly publication 
of " Miscellanea Oenealogica et Heraldica^" the present work was started to 
appear under the same Title^ but at more frequent intervals^ and at a reduced 

The Editor has every reason to be satisfied with the reception which has 
been accorded to the present volume ; and it is not proposed to prolong the 
existence of the larger Miscellany beyond Volume II., which is now nearly 
completed. It may be convenient to state, in this place, that the Quarterly 
and Monthly series have been kept quite distinct as regards their contents. 
There has been no reprinting. 

The number of Subscribers continues to increase, and it is gratifying to 
the Editor to find that his labours are appreciated not only in this country 
but also in the United States. It was, indeed, to be expected that a pe- 
riodical containing so large a proportion of inedited matter, extracts from 
church registers, tabular pedigrees and the like, illustrating the descent 
and arms of the more modern British families, should be found deserving 
of encouragement by those zealous students of genealogy whose number is 
daily increasing in the older English settlements of North America. 

The Volume now completed will be found to contain many original 
documents of interest, and in particular several early wills, grants of arms, 
and notes of curious deeds and seals, presenting, it is hoped, attractive matter 
to the antiquarian public in general. 

To all those friends whose contributions so liberally placed at his disposal 
have materially furthered the design, the Editor for himself, and on the part 
of the whole body of Subscribers, must ofier his very cordial thanks. 

No efforts will be spared to render the continuation of the work deserving 
of the kind patronage wldch has been extended to the portion now completed.

The following memoTandat relate to the family of Sir John Chapman, Kt., the well-known Lord 
Ma^or of 1688, whose pedigree is very imperfectly exhibited in the Baronetages. Lord Macaulay 
(Hiat. of England, ii. 557) graphically describes the fatal agitation of the Lord Mayor when Lord 
Chanoellor JefiVeys was dragged before him, in the riots which followed the abdication of King 
James, although he omits to mention his name. He says, " Tlie Mayor was a simple man, who had 
paaeed his whole life in obscurity, and wae bewildered by finding himself an important [actor in a 
mighty revolution . The events of the last twenty-four hours, and the perilous state of the City 
which was under his charge, had disordered his mind and his body. When the great man, at whose 
frown, a few days before, the whole kingdom had trembled was dragged into the justice-room be* 
grimed with ashes, half-dead with fright, and followed by a raging multitude, the aeitation of the 
unfortunate Mayor rose to the height. Ho fell into fits and was carried to his bed, whence he nerer 
rose.'* It may be doubted, however, whether Macaulay has done justice to the political experience 
of Sir John Chapman, for Sir John was one of the six aldermen of London, who were displaoed in 
1687 for opposing the address in favour of the Declaration of Indulgence ; and his contemporary 
Dr. Soott, the B^tor of St. Giles-in-the-Fields, praises in high terms the wisdom and prudence of 

* The arms on seal are those of Penn impaling Springett, William Penn having married — at 
Chalfont, in 1672~Guliclma Maria, daughter of Sir William Spriiigett. His first wife died 23rd 
February, 1694. In 1696 he married Hannali, daughter of Thomas Callowhill, of Bristol.

The Family op TEEyoB, etc.* — Since writing the account of tbe above family 
in tbe pages of your truly valuable and interesting miscellany, I beg leave to correct 
a mistake I made at p. 79 and to append a few further particulars. At p. 79 I stated 
tbat Justin MacCarthy married secondly a daughter of Sir Thomas Uawes, Knt.,

of London. Now Justin was a member of the family of MacCarthys of " Qleann 
a-Chroim," or the " Vale of Crom," and it was his brother Denis (eldest son of 
Denis MacCarthy, Esq., of co. Cork, and of Squire's Mount, Hampstead, by. his 
cousin Mary), who was father of Sir Charles Justin, G-overnor of Ceylon. Sir 
Charles married, in 1848, Sophia Brunei, eldest daughter of Sir Benj. Hawes, 
K.C.B., Under Secretary of War (M.P. for Lambeth 1832-47 and for Kinsale 
1848-52). He was appointed Auditor- General of Ceylon in 1847, Colonial Secre- 
tary of that island 1852, Governor in 1860, and died October, 18G4. Daniel, nephew 
of Charles Justin, author of the * Life and Letters of Florence MacCarthy Eeagh, 
Tanist of Carbery,' married Harriet, daughter of Admiral Sir Home Popham. 

James MacCarthy, a Lieutenant in the 21st (Boyal North British Fusiliers) 
regimt-nt of the line, died at Barbadoes, January 23, 1842, leaving issue by his 
wife, Isabella Gowland, four sons and a daughter, viz. 2, Edward Fredk. Augustus, 
late of H.M.'s 2Uh (2nd Warwickshire) and 35th (Sussex) regiments ; 4, Thomas 
James, bom 1840, died of cholera at Morar Gwalior in 1861 ; 5, James Justin ; 
1, Henrietta Louisa, bom 1835, died 1838 ; 3, Eliza Sarah Ann, married, in 1865, 
Dr. G-len, a surgeon to the Indian Government. The father of James MacCarthy 
was Edward, bom 1768, married Sarah Bull, at St. Ann's, Westminster, 29th 
November, 1789. He served in the 50th (West Kent, or Queen's Own) regiment, 
and afterwards as Assistant Engineer of the Third Division, under Lieut.- General 
Sir Thos. Picton, and was severely wounded at the storming of Badajos, at the 
storming of Fort Napoleon, Almarez, and the battle of Corunna. He had issue, — 
1, Sarah, bom May 15, 1793, died at Slough, April, 1865, unmarried ; 2, Edw. 
Denis, bom June 24, 1795, died of dysentery and fever while Lieutenant com- 
manding 1500 men in the bush against the Ashantees, buried at Cape Coast Castle, 
married ; 3, William Justin, bom July 24, 1797, late 84th (York and Lancaster) 
regiment, retired Lieut.- Colonel, now living at Bedford, married ; 4, James born 
24 August, 1801, died of yellow fever at Prince Bupert*s Bay, Dominica, December, 
1841, while serving as Lieutenant in the 3rd West India regiment. 

Dr. MacCarthy, another member of the same family, now or latterly resided at 
Wellington, Salop.

Chubch Beotster. — I have in my possession part of a church register, and 
give a short description of its contents, since 1 am anxious to restore it to the 
book from whence the leaf has been torn out. 

The fragment when folded forms four narrow folio pages, the first entries 

" October 1670. the wife of M' Jeames Whelar was buryed the 21 day. 
" October 1670. from the Swann. John Maynard was buryed the 26 day." 

I extract a few others : — 

" December 1670 John Bennolds was buryed the 9 day* 

" Jeames the son of Jeames "Wheler was buryed the 29 day. 

" January, the wife of Edward Cotwell was buryed the 25 day. 

" Abrill 1671 Mary the wife of Abell Stannard was buryed the 6 day. 
" Lawrante ffinch was buryed the 22 day. 

" July Bose Wilbe widdo was buryed the 24 day. 

" Elisebeth daughtar of Jeames Harrison by Bose his wife was buryd the 
28 day. 

" August Johanna Osborne widdo was buryed the first day." 

On satisfactory proof being furnished, I will, with pleasure, restore the fi«g- 
ment to its proper place.

22, High SireetfBloomsbufy, London, 


Eastbt. — (1.) In tbe List of the Vicars of the Parish of Eastry there is a gap be- 
tween the year 1455, when John Craller, Bector of Hartleport, dioc Lincoln, ex- 
changed wiui Eobt. Dekyn, Vicar of Eastir (Beg. Bouch. f 60 b, Lambeth), and the 
year 1517, when Bichara Maister was collated to the ricarage, then yacant by the 
death of the last incumbent, — name not mentioned (Beg. Warh. f. 863 b) ; and 
although I have been able to fill up this gt^p partially with ''Sir*' William Craller in 
1479 and Master Thomas Aschowe in 1487, crom wills, yet still there remains a gap 
between 1507, when Aschowe died, and 1517, when Maister was instituted. Can 
you or any of your readers supply the name of the missing yicar ? 

A.D. 1455, John Craller. 
In 1479, " Sir " William Craller ; died 1487. 
A.D. 1487, Master Thomas Aschowe ; died 1507. 

A.I). 1517, Bichard Maister, S.T.B. 

(2.) Again, Thomas Sawyer was appointed yicar in 1553 (Hasted), and John 
Lawson in January, 1557, o.s. (Beg. Pol. f. 76 a) ; but in the same register, Bobert 
Hill, who resigned, is mentioned as the predecessor of Lawson. Query, in what 
year was Hill collated to Eastry ? 

(3.) Also, in what year was Peter Lymiter (whose name and date of death, 
▲.n. 1580, we gather from the parish register) appointed f 

(4.) Can you give me any information respecting the family of Samuel Nicols, 
appointed Vicar of Eastry 1590, died 1638/9? He seems to haye been possessed 
of some land in the parisn, as he is mentioned in an old rental of 1633, and in the 
terriers also, as the owner of lands adjoining the glebe. His. daughter married 
one of the Paramors of Statenborough. I judge from the fact of his baring 
bought (?) or inherited (?) lands in the parish that he must haye been a man of 
property, and perhaps also of family. Prior to his being Vicar of Eastry, he 
appears to haye been Bector of Little Mongeham in 1588. 

If you or any of your correspondents can throw any light on the matters above 
mentioned, I shall be yery glad. W. F. S. 

Fbobsham. — Formerly a small bell was suspended outside the tower of Frods- 
ham Church, Cheshire, ana was called the '* Dagtale *' Bell, being runs (immediately 
after the ordinary bells had ceased ringing) by a man, posted at a window or opening 
in the tower, when he saw the ricar coming to celebrate sendee. What was the 
origin of the practice, and word " Dagtale"? 

2. Under the battlements on the east face of the same tower is a tablet, in 
relief, containing the letters " SJ^O "; what do they signify ? On the south side 
of Kirkby Malgdale (Crayen ?) Church-tower are the letters " G N B." The ages 
of all are perhaps of about the fifteenth century, — maybe much earlier. Double 
Christian names were unknown, otherwise these initials might haye belong;ed to 
some builder or restorer of the churches. Is it possible they are the inituds of 
the seyeral surnames of restorers ? 

3. Can any correspondent refer me to any eyidence of the founder of the family 
of Sir Christopher Hatton, K.G., being brother of Nigel, first Baron of Halton, 
Cheshire, and of such family being descended, matemtJly, from the old Counts of 
Britagne and Dukes of Normandy ? 

4. I am also desirous of knowing of what family were the Downes of Manby 
(Lincoln) and Stockwell (Surrey), John the Begicide being of this stock.

was oonflscated by Parliament in 1721, on the collapse of that unfortunate scheme : but his sons 
inherited considerable wealth from their mother's family. Sir Henry Wood, by his will and settle- 
ment, both dated in May, 1671, had settled his great estates in Suffolk on his daughter Mary, after- 
wards Duchess of Southampton, in strict settlement ; with remainder to his brother Thomas, Bishop 
of Lichfield, in tail ; with remainder to his sister Lady Mary Chester in tail male ; with remainder 
to his sister Elizabeth Webb in tail male ; with remainder to his own right heirs. On the death of 
Charles Cranmer, aUat Wood, Esq., in September, 1748, the last tenant in tail under these limita- 
tions, the ultimate remainder to the heirs of Sir Henry came into effect, and the Wood estates were

to peruse ; if it does not prove Sufficient, only write me word, & I will use my best 
enaeavours to procure from the Parish Begister of Whitby, if I can but have the 
perusal of it : if not, I shall not know what to do ; for tho their Parish Begister 
18 not so old as ours, yet it must be larger because of the Number of Inhabitants^ 
k therefore will take up a great deal more Time.

dates and places of marriage.

Manwood. — I am anxious to obtain some information respecting the Manwood 
family, seated at the commencement of the eighteenth century at Bromfield, in 
Essex. The signature and seal of John Manwood, of Bromfield, occurs on a deed 
in my possession, dated 30 October, 1704. Mention is made in this deed of Ea- 
therine, wife of the said John Manwood. 

A pedigree of the Manwoods is given in the Visitation of Kent, 1619, which 
ends with the issue of Peter Manwood, of St. Stephen's, Knight of the Bath, by 
Frances, daughter of Sir G-eorge Hart, of Lullingston, Knt. On a seal used by 
Soger Manwood, eldest son of this Peter Manwood, the pallets are represented as 
engrailed. B. M.

In the sinister comer is the remains of the coat of arms. Sable, a " Fret " argent ;

Can any one give information as to whom the portrait might represent ? There 
is to be seen in Chipping Norton, Oxon, churchyard, a gravestone with the in-

Weiieamde^ BieknoUer, Taunton, 

Williams or Abebystbxxth, ob Blaiwa Gwent, Moitmouthshibe. — The 
founder of this family was Caradoc ap Brane, or Cradocke Yralch-vras (strong arm), 
Duke of Gloucester, Earl of Hereford, Brecknock, and Eadnor, Prince between 
the Wye and the Severn^ called by the Eomans, Caractacus, King of the Silures. 
He married Tegiruron, daughter and sole heiress to King Pelinor, and drove the 
Scots and Picts out of all her dominions. The arms of Williams are — Sable a 
cheTTon between three spears' heads argent, embrued proper (denoting descent from 
Caradoc) ; on a chief of the second, argent a wy veme*s nead erased vert, langued 
gules, holding a sinister hand in its mouth proper, dropping blood (denoting de- 
scent from Pelinor). 

OliTer Cromwell comes down in a parallel line with this family from Sir Richard 
WiUiams, whose sister married Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Henry VIII.'b Chancellor. 
This Sir Richard Williams, after the execution of Lord Cromwell, assumed the 
name of Cromwell, and Oliyer was his great grandson ; but Sir Richard's brother 
refused to change his name, and from him the present family are descended. 
Thomas, Lord Cromwell, had a sister, who married a Morgan Williams, whose son 
was ordered by Henry YIII. to take the name of Cromwell, and he became Sir 
Richard Cromwell, and was the grandfather of Oliver Cromwell. The arms borne 
on the private carriage of Oliver Cromwell were the same as those which are borne 
by Williams. Williams of Llangibby formerly bore the same arms, but on mar- 
rying into the Adams family they have adopted the arms of Adams. 

•Any information respecting the family of Williams whose ancestors resided at 
Havodavel, in the parish of Aberystruth, in the county of Monmouth, will be most 
thankfully accepted.

gulet two mitrei or in chief and a i/arb or in base, and bo I took the blazon on these 
rolls to be, until a closer inspection convinced me of the two chief charges being 
garbs and not mitres. Can any of your correspondente inform me of any other 
instance of a similar blazon ? The date of these would be about the opening of 
the fin«enth century in the one case, and as early as the beginning of the four- 
teenth century in the other. They are certainly intended for the Cholmondeley 
arms, and may have been borne some time before the two mitrea were adopted, 
which in their turn were eupptant«d by the esquires' helmets.

Mary, married . . , Skinner. This lady appears to have been baptised at St. An-

as some further information regarding Mr. Skinner, and shall feel greatly obliged

marriage has been searched for at St. Andrew's, Norwich, but without success.

[The arms of Chester, as granted on 22 May, 1467, by William Hawkslow, 
Clarencieux, to William Chester, of London, were enclosed " within a bordure 
engrailed gules bezanty ; " but the bordure was disused by Sir John Chester, the 
fourth baronet, and his descendants, although it appears on the monument of his 
brother, Henry Chester, Esq., at East Haddon, who died in 1726. 

Sir Francis Chester is in all the baronetages confused with his son. He was 
the fifth son of Sir John Chester, fourth baronet, by Anne, daughter and coheir of 
Wm. Wollaston, Esq , and was bom at Shenton Hall, in Leicestershire, the seat 
of the Wollaston family in 1693. He married, on 4 March, 1717-18, his cousin, 
Bethia Webb, of whom and her son full particulars will be found in the pedigree 
of Webb at page 15. On 25 May, 1755, he succeeded as the eighth baronet on 
the death of his nephew, Sir Charles Bagot Chester, but he did not succeed to the 
Chieheley estate, for it was alienated by the will of Sir Charles from the blood and 
family of Chester. Sir Francis survived his only child, and died a lunatic at 
Chelsea, 18 December, 1766. He was the last male descendant of the fourth 
baronet, and on the death of his cousin and successor. Sir Anthony Chester, the 
ninth baronet, 17 May, 1769, the m^e line of Chester became extinct.]

" There is no Gravestone, nor other remark in this Church, (Bengeo), more than that Mr. Hum- 
phrey Hall, who had a fair House in this Parish, called Thomsons, where he lately died, and was 
buried in this Parish-Church ; his Executor as I am informed has provided a fair Marble to cover 
him ; but I could not obtain a sieht of the Inscription, therefore cannot insert it ; however I ought 
to kt the World know that he irequented the Church, was beloved by the Gentry ; just to his 
Neighbour, and Charitable to the Poor ; and by his Will dated 30 Jan, 1690, gave 601 to be laid 
ODt in a Purchase of Fifty Shillings per Annmm to be paid Yearly to the Poor of this Parish." See 
also Salmon's ' History of Hertfordshiio,' under Bengeo ; Clutterbuok's * History of Co. Hertford,' 
vol. ii. p. 29. Thomsons was another name for Goldings, for in the Register of Burials at Beneeo,

have been erer since used bj his docendanta. This naturatl; guggeats the tnguirr aa to whether he 
wu entitled to the coat without the croes croesleti. Had the leal been engtsTed for Humphrej 
Hftit, the omission of tlie cross crosslcts miifht hare been an error of the engraver j but I incline to 
think thia wu not the case for two reaiona : first, because Ihe appearance of the impreasion ia, in 
my opinion, that of a seal of older date than Humphrey Hall's time ; and seoondly, because I can 
show some probabilitv that be wu descended out of a fsmilj who bore for arms three talbots' heads 
erased without the addition of orosi crossleta. The cross croaslets may hare been merely a mtnk of 
cadency assigned by the Heralds. The Halls of Henwick, oo. Woreester, and of Leicestershire, who 
were of the same family, bore them siure inst«a<l of gules ; thus aSording a strong presumption tliat 
they were differences added to the original coat for younger branches. 

John Hall, before mentioned, was son of Thomas Hall, of Wamhsm, co. Sussei, and I conjec- 
ture that he wu one of the descendants of Ricliard Hall, of Howland, in Hoalhley, co. Sussex, who 
bore, acrording to HsHeian Ma., 1484, fo. 67 b, argent three talbots' head* erased sable. This coat

1761, but showing some slight remains of an older brick buildmg. During some repairs, the date

Katherine married the Rev. Oliver Poeklington of Chelmsford, and had one 
son and three daughters, viz. Katherine, Thomas, Diana, and Ann. 

Thomas was the only one alive in 1728. 


Maitwood (p. 22). — There is an inscription against the north wall of Bromfield 
Church commemorating Thomas Manwood, who is stated to be the son of John 
Manwood, Esq., compiler of a learned treatise on Eorest Laws, and nearly allied 
to Sir Boger Manwood. Kt., Chief Baron of the Exchequer temp. Elizabeth. This

whither, for a short time, they had fled from the plague. In the parish register of 
St. Alkmund's, Derby, occurs the following entry : — 

" 1654. Buryed Elizabeth the Wife of Mr. Steeven Flamsted." 
Query. — Were this Steeven and Elizabeth the parents of the astronomer? 
None of the biographies I have yet consulted give their names ; and (according to 
Lysons) the register at Denby has no record of John's baptism. He was bom

College, Oxford, was Senior Proctor in 1649, and was one of the ejected ministers 
at the visitation of the Parliament and a sufferer among the royalists ? He after- 
wards had the living of Dr. Hammond, at Penshurst, Kent. At the Eestoration, 
being obliged to quit this living, he went to his relations at Exeter and afterwards 
to Ottery St. Mary. He died in 1674. 

Was he connected with the Mauduits who came over with the Conqueror and 
one of whom was Earl of Warwick ?

The celebrated Major-G-eneral Philip Skippon commanded the infantry, for the 
Parliament, at the battle of Naseby, and was grievously wounded. He had £1000 a 
year lands of inheritance assigned, to him by the Parliament. The Duke of Buck- 
ui^ham's estate at Bletchlej, co. Bucks, was given him, but at the Besto ration it 
reverted to the Crown. He had an estate at Foulsham, Norfolk, devised to him 
by his ancle, Wm. Skippon, Esq., of Tavistock, co. Devon. 

The family Bible of the General is now the property of Nathl. Bamardiston, 
Esq., of the iijes, near Sudbury, Suffolk, and the numerous entries by the General 
and his son. Sir Philip Skippon, are, with his leave, copied from it. It is the quarto 
"breeches" Bible of IGIO, ancient embossed black leather binding, wjth brass 
clasps, red lined, and texts very much marked under with ink, many of them appli- 
cate to the political as well as religious enthusiasm of the Skippons. 

In addition to the genealogical evidence given by the entries, it may be stated 
that the son, Sir Philip, was buried at Ketton, in Suffolk, 14 August, 1C9L, and his 
daughter Mary at the same time, with the ancestors of his second wife, the ancient 
family of Barnardiston. The only surviving son of Sir Philip by his first wife, 
sold the Foulsham estate, 1715, and was buried at Edwardstone,* Suffolk, 10 Sep- 
tember, 17 IG, as ** Philip Skippon Esq".'* He appears to have been the last male 
of the name. 

The Major- General was son of Luke Skippon, who died 1638, and had another 
son, Luke, Vicar of South Lynn, Rector of W issingset, Norfolk, and Master Elect 
of Peter House, Cambridge, whose four children named in Blomefield*s * Norfolk ' 
appear to have died without issue, and one not named, Susan, married Clement 
Keigham, Esq., and was buried at Barrow, Suffolk, 1695 

Sir Philip Skippon married the niece of Saml. Bamardiston, the first Bound- 
beadt who was created Baronet after the Bestoration. It was for passages in 
letters to Sir Philip that Sir Saml. Barnardiston was impeached and tried before 
Judge Jeffreys, 1683, and fined £10,000, and long imprisoned. (See * State Trials.') 
It is remarkable that on the trial no use appears to have been made of the fact 
that the intercepted letters were to his nephew, therefore the charge of " mali- 
ciously and seditiously " writing them was the more unreasonable. This case of 
oppression has lately been alluded to in the House of Lords, with reference to re- 
flections on Ministers of the Crown, in letters. 

In Ketton Church is a handsome mural monument for Sir Philip Skippon, with 
his arms quartering the arms of both his wives : — 

1 and 4. Skippon. Gules, five annulets, or. 

2. Brew9tttr, Sable, a chevron between three etoiles, argent. 

3. Barnardiston, Azure, a fesse dancette ermine, between six crosses crosslet, 

The notes at the beginning of the Bible are written by Major- General Skippon 
and those at the end by his son Sir Philip. 

In extreamitate maxima me juvit et juvabit Jehovah. 

This Bible mentioned in my testament is for my soune Luke Skippon, let him 
haue it.

Skippons with the family of Brand.

Philip Skippon and Amy Brewster were married together in Wrentham Church 
in the County of Suffolke by M' Hen. Wotton, minister of the Parish, on Thurs-

O Lord make this a child of Mercy and Comfort. 

About Midsummer 1676. This Child was weaned, hauing suckd of a Nurse, 
who was of a passionate temper, w*^** most friends did beleive was y« occasion of y* 
Chi Ids frequent Crying fitts that usually frighted us by his holding his Wind till 
he looked black & was allmost dead : but after he was weaned hee never had any 
of those Crying Fitts, & he did thrive exceedingly, hauing a better colour in his 
face Ac. O God lett me never forget thy mercies to me & mine. 

Philip Skippon and Anne Barnardiston were married in S. Brides church, Lon-

Morton. — The marringe of Emanuel Morton, of Ackworth, Yorkshire, with 
Ann Bradley, of Bawtry, is recorded in the Bawtry registers. This marriage took 
place in January, 1656. Cornelius, their eldest son, was baptized November 5, 
1657, and Thomas, another son. was buried July 2, 1673. Ann Morton was buried 
April 9, 1679, being then a widow. 

I especially wish to ascertain the name of the father and mother of Emanuel 
Morton ; also date of baptism. Any entries from the Ackworth registers relating 
to this family will be most acceptable. 

William Morton, of Masham, who was baptized January 10, 1741, son of

Cornwall,' vol. i. p. 135; I shall be glad to know of any library which contains the 
work in question : — 

" In 1604, John Luff, a retainer of Sir Reinold Mohun, dedicated a small work 
on armoury, or heraldry, to his patron. It is in quarto, but of no great value, 
except for some arms of Cornish gentlemen, taken out of church-windows, etc., 
and not to be met with in any other work."

Htdb, ok Hide, of Finchlet, Co. Middlesex. — I should be very glad to 
learn further particulars about this family, and especially whether it was a branch 
of Lord Clarendon's family. One member of it, Elizabeth Hyde, married, on the 
2nd of January, 1695, Bicliard Capper, of Tancoln's Inn, and died 26th of May, 
1727, in the fifty- second year of her age. The marriage allegations only contain 
the name of her mother, Elizabeth Hyde, then a widow and living at Finchley.

Hesketh Quabtekinos. — It may be worth noting that the quarterings of De 
Baux, Anjou, and Luxembourg, which form the twenty-third and twenty-fourth of 
the shield of Hesketh (* Miscellanea Genealogica,' Vol. II. p. 149) have no bus:-' 
ness there. Jaqueline of Luxembourg, Duchess of Bedfora, and afterwards wife 
of Sir Bichard Widvile, Lord Kivers, from whom so many English families descend, 
was not an heiresd in blood. Her brother Louis, Constable of France, had issue 
Peter, who, by Mary of Savoy, left a daughter and sole heiress. Mary, wife of 
Francis de Bourbon. So long as any descendant of Henry IV. of France exists, 
no one descended from the Countess of Kivers can quarter the arms of Luxembourg 
in her right. Again, Margaret de Baux, wife of Feter de Luxembourg, was not 
an heiress in blood, nor was she daughter of Francis de Baux, by Beatrix of Anjou, 
but by Justine de Ursini, his third wife, and could have no pretensions to quarter 
the arms of Anjou.

The Fkdebhills op New Place. — William Underbill, the owner of tlie 
bouse at 8tratford-upon-Avon wbicb afterwards became the residence of Shak- 
speare, was the second son of Edward Underbill, of Nether Eatin^on, in South 
Warwickshire. He was born in 1522 or 1523. His elder brother, Thomas, who is 
included by Fuller among the * Worthies of Warwickshire,* was celebrated for his 
exemplary life, hospitable disposition, and (though last, not least) family of twenty 

The subject of the present notice having studied the law, became a member of 
the Inner Temple. He is incorrectly described a« '* Clerk *' iu a pedigree pre- 
served in the College of Arms. 

About 1544, under the will of his grandfather, John Underbill, he became en- 
titled to a property in Staffordshire (the family originally came from Wolver- 
hampton), and some eight years later he married Ursula, the youngest daughter of 
John Congreve, Esq., of Congreve. Of this lady it is recorded thut '* her life was 
a spectacle unto all honest, virtuous, and obedient wives.*' The names of five 
children are given in the Herald's Visitation as the issue of this marriage, — Wil- 
liam, Dorothy, Elizabeth, Margaret, and Anne. 

In 1551, Edmund Bury passed to his brother-in-law, William Underbill, the 
manor of Barton-upon-the- Heath, which place, it will be remembered, is referred 
to iu the introduction to the * Taming of the Shrew.' This transfer seems to have 
been made for family reasons only, as the estate reverted to the Burys at a later 

In September, 155G, he presented Dr. Boger Clerke to the living of Idlicot, of 
which he held the patronage. 

In May, 1561, nis wife died and was buried at N. Eatington, and, after a time, 
he married again. His second wife was Dorothy, widow of Bichard Newport, and 
only sister of Christopher Hatton, who subsequently became Lord Chancellor. 

In 1567 he purchased the mansion in Stratford-on-Avon known as "New 
Place," and the lollowing year, bought the manor and estate of Idlicot. At that 
time, he was described as William Underbill, gent., of Newbold Bevel. 

Malone, in referring to certain Stratford records relating to the transfer of 
land, mentions an indenture, executed May 30, 1568, between William Clopton, 
Esq., of the one part, and Sir Bobert Throgmorton, Sir Thomas Lucy, Edmond 
Flowden, Esq., William Underbill, Esq., of Newbold Bevel, and others, of the other 

Under date January 26, 1569, the Council-book of Stratford-on-Avon has the 
following entry, which probably refers to him : — " Item payd for a dyner for M' 
UnderelT at the Swanne 17« 4^." 

Still acquiring property, he purchased, in 1569, the manor of Loxley. The 
same year nis mfe, Dorothy, died. Her will, made with the sanction of her hus- 
band, airects that the property which had come to her on the death of her son 
John Newport should pass to her second husband, in consideration of the advances 
he had made for the payment of her debts. 

Dugdale states that William Underbill died March 31, 1570. In his will, made 
on the previous December, he described himself as of Newbold Bevel, and directed 
that he should be buried at N. Eatington. To his heir he left the third part of all 
his manors, lands, and tenements, the rest — the manor of Idlicot being held in 
eapite — to his executors, to fulfil the intents and meaning of his will and to bring 
up his children. 

His marble memorial has portraitures in brass and escutcheons of the arms of 
Underbill impaling those of Congreve. The inscription is given by Dugdale. 

Of his daughters it may be added that one was married to John Harman, of 
Morehall ; and another, Anne, to George Mathew, of Berkswell. 

William Underhill, the only son and heir of the foregoing, was bom in 1554, 
and was in his seventeenth year at the time of his father's decease. About 1577 
he married his cousin Mary, daughter of Tho. Underhill, of Eatington, and resided 
at New Place. In 1578 his eldest son and heir, Fulk, was bom. In 1583 he pre- 


dented, as patroD, a clerk to the living of Idlicot. On the 25th of November, 1585, 
the registers of Stratford state that '' Elizabeth d' of M William (Jndrell " was 
baptized. The following year, according to the Stratford records, a writ of capias 
was issued against him as bail for one Francis Stone, and at the suit of Bichard 

A survey taken in 1690 states that at that time " Willielmus Underbill, gen. 
tenet libere quandam dumum vocatam *' The Newe Place *' cum pertinentiis per 
reddit. per annum 12^ sect, cur.*' The same survey informs us that he also held 
in " Walker's strete unum horreum," etc. 

In 1595, declining to pay to the corporation of Stratford the rent of the tithes 
of Little Wilnecott,* which had been leased to him, a bill of complaint was lodged 
by the bailiff and burgesses, and to this he put in his answer and demurrer in 
February, 1696-7. 

Under date March 11, 1697, the Stratford records allude to an action brought 
by " William Underehylle gent." against John Smith, vintner, on a plea of debt. 

On the 8th of April, in the same year, Walter Bassett, gent., and Sconsolate, 
his wife, bind themselves, under a penalty, to William Underbill, of Utlioote, co. 
Warwick, Esquire, in respect of the manor of Hints, near Lichfield. 

About the same period one Tho. Huntbach filed a Bill in Chancery against Wil- 
liam and Foulk Underbill, to enforce the agreement made to sell him a farm and 
lands at Shustoke. 

In Easter term, 1597, William Underbill sold to Shakspeare, for £G0, the house 
at Stratford known as '* New Place." The property is described as consisting of 
one messuage, two bams, and two gardens, with their appurtenances. It had been 
in the Underbill family thirty years. 

William Underbill is said to have been poisoned at Fillongley. He made his 
will July 6, 1597, and it was proved in London in the following month. In the 
Ino. p. m. taken at Wolverhampton, where he held property, he is described as of 
Fillongley : the original is preserved in the EoUs Office. To his eldest son, Fulk, 
he gave all his lands, and to each of his remaining sons £200, — they were Her* 
cules, Timothy, Ludowick, William, and Simon : of these, Hercules was knighted, 
and became heir on the death of Foulke in 1598, and of him Shakspeare purchased 
a messuage in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1602. 

ITie arms of the Stratford Underbills were ** Argent a chevron gules between 
three trefoils slipped vert ;** and the crest is usually given as " a hind lodged or on 
a mount vert," but an old seal of the Underbills m the possession of Mr. Evelyn 
Ph. Shirley exhibits it as " a buck trippant."

Lucas (p. 22). — William Lucas, of Middletown, married Esther Clark, 
Julv 12, 1666. SShe died April 15th, and he died April 20th, 1690, leaving issue 
William Lucas, born April 26, 1667 ; John Lucas, born October 14, 1669 ; 
Mary Lucas, bom 5th December, 1672 ; Thomas Lucas, bom . . . 1676 ; and 
Samuel Lucas, bom April 15, 1682. A Mr. Lucas resided at Newhaven iu 
1643 with a family of six, of whom no more is heard. A Lucas family of 
good estate in New England is of French descent. They came not very 
early across the ocean. The first emigrant, Augustus Lucas, writes of himself, — 
" I married C**' January, 1696, at St. Malo, in Bretague " (see James Savage's * (Ge- 
nealogical Dictionary,* vol. iii.). Several of the name of Lucas resi.ied at Col- 
chester some two hundred years ago, but I cannot find that nny of them emigrated 
to New England at the time corresponding with the above William. There was a 
John Lucas, Abbot of Waltham, co. Essex, in 1460 : he died 1475. I should feel 


glad to learn 8ome account of tbat individual, — as to what branch of the Lucas 
family he belonged, and where he was buried. I have a rubbing of a monumental 
brass from Lofts Wendon Church, Essex, with this inscription upon it : — ** Hie jacent 
Will'us Lucas et Katerina Uxor ejus, quorum animabus PPicietur Deus, Amen." 
Cole, in his MS. vol. xxxv. p. 2H, states the following : — " Under this ere j Figures 
in Brass of 4 sons and as many Daughters (w*^ in the sketch on y opposite Side I 
have mede too large in Proportion), the eldest i^on is habited as a Bishop or Abbat, 
with a Mitre on his Head & a Crosier in his left hand, & giving his Benediction 
with his right : But as there never was a prelate of that name of Lucas except 
John Lucas, who was chosen Lord Abbat of Waltham ab* 1400, & who died 1475, 
this determines it to be meant for him: in all probability, therefore, this was hii 
native Place, this account I sent to my Friend Brown Willis Esq." The arms and 
date are quite gone.

" Isaac Mawditt " was Mayor of Exeter in 1673, and again in 1681. Bid he, 
then, die in 1674, or were these two Isaacs, father and son ? 

" Isaac Mawditt and Stephen Olivcan " were Sheriffs of the County of the 
City of Exeter in 1663, and Isaac Mawditt again in 1670.

by Jone his wief, daughter and heire of Walter de Sweinthill, had issue Jone, wief 
of liiehard Malduit, called Somaister." — Ih. p. 313. 

The pedigree of "Somaster [of Pensford] " is thus given by Westcote, p. 551 : — 
" Eichard Maldvt, called Southmaster,* of Exon, married Joan, daughter and heir 
of William de Henton, and had issue Robert ; who married Margaret, daughter 
and heir of John Herward, of Bothkison, and Joan, his wife, daughter and 
heir of John le Cornu, by whom he had issue Ralph, William, Adam. This 
Robert died before his father ; he sealed with the gate : which arms came to him 
by his mother, whose grandmother was daughter and heir to De la Port [of Olda- 
port]. William, (>t 'N etherexe [close to Exeter], second son, had a daughter and 
Dcir married to [John] Limpenny. — From Adam Somaster is descended Somanter 
of Pensford," whose pedigree Westcote gives at p. 600, and the arms, — " Argent, a 
castle triple- towered between eight fleurs-de-lis [sable]. Crest, — A portcullis, with 
chains, argent. This part was granted for a crest by Clarence Cooke, 14th March, 
1586, under his hand and seal."* 

I find oo notice of Ualph : William, the second son, married Alice daughter of 
John Prideaux, of Adeston, near Modbury, and had issue William, whose son John 
died without issue. Netherexe passed to John Limpenny, mentioned above, and 
was sold br him to William Hurst, of Exeter.— Pole, p. 190. 

Probabfj the Exeter Mauduits were a branch of this very ancient family.

Washington, the North Wilts family, were exhibited. These came from a church 
at Malmesbury, the monuments to which they belonged, being removed when that 
church was restored. Can any of your readers tell me where those shields are now 
to be found, and to what branch of the Wilts Lawrences they belong ? The only 
Malmesbury Lawrences 1 know of are the following : — 


Jane. John L. Latin will, dated 5 Sept. 1488,=T=Alioe. Bobert, of Malmesbury ,=pRo8e,

Malmesbury registers : — 

** Eob* Lawrence & Joane Hollins both living in Charlton Parish were married 
at Malmesbury by the Alderman M' Edward Waite Aug. 13. 1655. 

" William L. of Westport & Eliza Galer of Milbome in this parish were mar- 
ried by M^ John Hodges Vicar 15 Oct. 1665. 

" A child of John Lawrence of Westport buried 7 Jan. 1667. 

" Th~ L. of Westport a lawyer & landholder bur^ 4 A. 1672." 

A stone monument to the memory of Sir Lawrence Washington is now, I hear, 
at the Rectory, Oarsdon, three miles from Malmesbury, which originally was put 
up in the church at Garsdon, and was removed there when -the church was restored 
about ten years ago. 

1 am anxious to find out, first, the connection between the Lawrences and 
Washingtons (a North Wilts family) ; secondly, would be glad if any one could 
add any information to the above Lawrence descent.

Abms. — Among the papers of a deceased relative which have lately come into 
mjr possession there is a square of parchment emhlazoned as follows : — 

Sable between four fleurs-de-lis or a cross argent, charged with five pheons 
azure, impaling gules a lion rampant or. 

Crest (on the helmet of an esquire) : On a mount vert a stag argent, antlered 
and hoofed or, behind him a tree vert, lambrequin argent and gules. 

Wreath, argent and sable. No motto. 

There is no name or writing of any sort giving any clue to the ownership. If 
any of your readers can supply it, I shall feel obliged.

Crow of Goldtngton' abd Disher op London. — To the settlement on mar- 
riage of Dorothy Crow, of London, spinster, one of the daughters and coheirs of 
William Crow, late of Qoldington, Bedfordshire, gentleman, with William Disher, 
of London, merchant, dated 23 March, 1G99, are the seals of Dorothy Crow and 
William Disher. That of Dorothy Crow is here given. The seal used by William 

Disher is much mutilated. The arms appear to be a chevron between three double- 
headed eagles displayed. Crest, a centaur passant reguardant drawing a bow and 

I should be glad to know whether there were any descendants from this mar- 

I may mention that the mother of Dorothy Crow was Anne Crow, a widow at 
date of execution of the settlement.

John Hilles, D.D. — Can any of your readers inform me what arms were 
borne by John Hilles, D.D., MastiBr of Catherine Hall, Cambridge, and Archdea- 
con of Lincoln, who died in 1626 ? He mentions in his will, made in 1625, his 
sons John, Ueigham, Kobert, William, and Thomas, also his daughters Anne, 
Susan, and Jane. Anne married Edward Aylmer, D.D., of Claydon Hall, Suffolk, 
a grandson of the Bishop of London. Information respecting any of his family 
will greatly oblige. 

C. W. H. 

Richard Stonelet. — Information is requested respecting Richard Stoneley, 
one of the Tellers of the Exchequer, originally of Warwick, and who purchased — 
ill the year 1679, of the Oxford family — Dodinghurst, in Essex. He married (see 
Burke's * Commoners,' "Taylor of Clifton ") Anne, daughter and coheir of John 
Braunche, Esq., by Ellen, daughter and coheir of Francis Hampden, and had issue 
two daughters, coheiresses, — Dorothy, married to William Dawtrey, of Moor 
House, Sussex, and Anne, the wife of William Heigham, of East Ham, Essex. 

The arms of Stoneley were, — ^Azure on a fosse between three bucks' heads 
caboshed or a fleur-de-lis of the first between two demi-roses gules. And Anne 
(who married Heigham) and her descendants quartered with this coat, — Azure a 
fesse between three scythe-blades (or horns) or. 

This quartering does not agree either with the arms of Braunche or Hampden ; 
it is more like the coat of Brayne of Gloucestershire. Can any of your corre- 
spondents offer an explanation 't 

C. W. H. 


SMrxjc. — The R3v. Barnabas Smith, Bector of North Witham, married the 
mother of Sir Isaac Newton ; he died about the year 1(>56. I shall be glad of any 
information concerning him or his family.

Sin Qeorub Smitu, Knight. — I am extremely anxious to establish the identity 
between the Sir George Smith (or Smythe). of Matford, co. Devon, knight, alluded 
to in Westcote*s * View of Devonshire,* 1845, pp. 187, 470,* 631: and Burke's 
* Landed Gentry,* title " Granville of Wellesbourne :" the Sir George Smyth, of 
Motford, CO. Dorset, referred to in the Harleian MSS. 1166, fo. 9 ; 1451, fo. 17 ; 
1539, fo. 96 : and George Smith, of Mudford, co. Some.'^et, whose name occurs in 
Hutchins's * Dorset,* first edition, 1774, vol. i. p. 151 ; second edition, 1796, vol. i. p. 
248 ; third edition, 1861, vol. i. part iii. p. 408. .All the Sir George Smiths above 
mentioned lived in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. I presume that Matford, co. 
Devon, Motford, co. Dorset, and Mudford, co. Somerset, are in reality the same 
place, and that a clerical error has been committed by the transcribers of the 
Harleian MSS. 1 may add that 1 have private reasons of my own for coming to 
this conclusion, but I wish to be confirmed in my view of trie case. My object 
would be fully attained if I could ascertain the names of all the daughters of Sir 
George Smith, of Matford, and of the gentlemen of quality to whom they were 

Thomas Parr Heknino. 

P.S.— I find upon consulting Westcote, p. 631, that Sir George Smith formed 
two matrimonial alliances. Perhaps this circumstance would assist in throwing 
light upon the point in question.

were bailiiFs to the Earls of Northumberland, tenants of Cawledge South Park 
— still called Archbold's Park, — and owners of considerable property in the parish 
of Alnwick. St. Thomas's lands, formerly part of the possessions of Alnwick 
Abbey, and other fields, and several burgages in the town belonged to them. 
They loom largely in Alnwick Church : on the monumental limestone slab ^' Gulielmi 
Archbold,*' their arms, a lion rampant between six fleurs-de-lis, and crest, a fleur- 
de-lis, are grandly sculptured, and they appear, too, with the initials I. A. and date 
1711, on the lintel of a doorway of one of the burgages which belonged to them. 

The Archbblds were a long-lived race. William, the first of them, died in 
1700, aged 82 ^ears ; John, the next, died in 1730, aged 76 years ; Edward, the 
third in succession, died in 1764, aged 79 years ; and John, the last of them, in 
1805, aged 83 yeai*s : so that the united ages of four successive generations amount 
to three hundred and twenty years.

Anna Southwell, 

Hawobth OB HowoRTH pEDiOREE. — A branch of this ancient family migrated 
from Haworth, in the township of Hundersfield, near Bochdale, on the borders of 
Yorkshire and Lancashire, and settled in Snaith for some generations, and then 
came to Hull in the latter half of the seventeenth century. 

Dr. James, in the ' Iter Lancastrense/ written 1636, thus describes his visit to 
Haworth Hall: — 

** To Bobin Howorth from whose Familie 
Great Noble Peers derive their progenie." 
This Bobin Howorth was 'bom in 1600 and succeeded his father, Edmund 
Howorth, of Howorth, and is mentioned by Su* Biohard St. George in his Visita- 
tion of liancaster in 1613. He was the twenty-second in lineal descent from 
Osbert Howord de Howord, who was Master of the Buck-hounds in the time of 
Henry II., and who received certain lands in Howord for his good and faithful 
Ber\ice8 to his sovereign. 

The Snaith and Hull parish registers contain the following entries : — 
" Adam Hawworth married 1540 Allyson Greene." (Snaith.) 
" Hen. Haworth married 1568 Agnes Lambert.** (Whitgift.)

CLA.BEE OF St. Ites (p. 36). — The seal of Bobert Clarke, elder, of St. Ivee, 
1686, appears to be compounded with the arms of Lawrence of St. Ives. On 
reference to the pedigree of the latter family, it will be observed that a lady of it 
married a Clarke early in the seventeenth century. 

L. A. 

PsDiOBEE OF Best (p. 44). — In a pedigree in my possession I find mention of 
Edward Turner (son of Thomas Turner, of Gray's Inn and Canterbury, by Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Sir Edward Boys, of Fredvile), who married, about 1670-80, 
Elizabeth Best. I am anxious to know whether there was issue of the marriage. 

W. J. L. 

Lascelles. — The following is the only entry relating to this family in the 
parish registers of Langton, near Malton : — 

" 1657. M™ Lassells of Thomthorp buried February y« 6*^." 
And in the church of St. Leonard's, Malton, — 

" M*" Swinbum Lascelles, Attorney at Law, was Buried in "Woollen the 27*** of 
December 1729." 

Edwabd Mokton. 

Thubstow. — Information wanted as to the ancestry of Edward Thurston, bom 
in England about 1617, emigrated to the colony of Bhode Island, in New England, 
before 1648, and died in Newport, E. I., in 1707. 

Chables M. Thubstoit. 

Nmo Roehelle^ New Tori, U. 8. 

Sib Isaac Heabd, Gabteb. — I have a fine China bowl bearing the arms of Sir 
Isaac Heard, Garter King of Arms. I think it must have been presented to him 
for some particular service ; but as I am uncertain, I should be glad if any one 
oould give information on the subject. 

B. M. 

Abms (p. 47). — To " C. J. B." I suggest that the emblazonment he inquires 
about may posssibly pertain to the name of Banks. The arms on the dexter side 
are nearly those of Banks, of Aylesford, co. Kent, which are said to be Sable on a 
cross between four fleurs-de-lis argent five pheons azure. The bearing impaled, 
gules a lion rampant or, was that of D' Albany, Albney, and A Ibini. 

Chables Jacksok. 


Smeaton. — Can any of your correspondents inform me where a pedigree of the 
family of Smeaton, living at Ejrk Smeaton, near Pontefract, about 1400, is given ; 
or state what arms they bore ? Also whether John Smeaton, the builder of Eddy- 
stone lighthouse, who was bom at Austhorpe, near Leeds, in 1724, was descended 
from that family P 

James Busby. 

* Alto ancestor of Lords Abinger and Campbell, Sir A. J. Lawrence, K.C.B., etc. The author 
of the papers referred to is a good general guide, but not a faithful genealogist, for on an examina- 
tion of the Lawrence wills it will be seen that he sometimes entirely suppressed senior linos to make 
room for junior. 


White Family. — John White came to Ireland, from England, in a year 
between 1695 and 1702. I have some faint recollection of hearing that he came 
from Kent. He purchased lands which had been forfeited by the adherents of King 
James in 1702, in the counties of Limerick and Tipperary, in which a Mr. John 
Marshall was a partner for a part. He lived and died at Cappagh, in the county 
of Tipperary, which is still called Cappagh White, after him. He died in 1718. 
His first wile was Susanna, sister to Richard Newport, Esq., of Longford, in the 
county of Limerick ; she died 7th December, 1700, and was buried in the family 
vault at Toem, co. Tipperary. His second wife was Catherine Mann, a widow : 
she was sister to Lord Muskerry (Deane). His children by his first wife were 
Richard, Newport, Kebecca, and Catherine. 

Rev. Newport White married Fanny Forster. His sons were, — John, married 
Catherine Hunt ; Eichard, died at Smyrna, in Asia Minor ; Newport, married Mary 

Newport's youngest son, Benjamin, married Catherine, eldest daughter of New- 
port White, eldest son of John and Catherine. His three sons were Jlev. Newport 
Benjamin, Rev. Henry Vere, and John Davis. 

John White, first named, had three half-brothers, who came to Ireland at the 
same time as he did. His mother's name was Schuldam. They were the children 
of a Miss Hamilton. Their names were Benjamin, William, and Hamilton. Ben- 
jamin was ancestor of the branch of the family known as the Whitehall branch. 
Finch White, of Kincora, near Killaloe, being the representative ; William, of the 
Whites of Greenhall, New Ross, and Manistor ; Hamilton, of the Bantry family 
(Earl of Bantry). 

When Richard WTiite was created Baron Bantry, he of course applied for a 
grant of arms. The heralds gave him the arms of Sir Thomas White, of Rick- 
mansworth, who was Lord Mayor of London in 1555, and these arms are now 
adopted by every branch of the family. I think the arms should more properly 
have been those of Sir William White, who was Lord Mayor of London in 1489, 
— in which there are three covered cups, and three martlets upon a chevron, as I 
was told that there was some old family plate which had *' covered cups " as part 
of the arms. 

The following arms are on the seal used by John White attached to a lea^e 
made by him : — A chevron between three roses ; Crest, An arm embowed holding 
a sword. There was an old family of Whites in Clonmel, and on a tombstone 
belonging to one of the family, date about 1650, the arms were the same as on the 
seal used to the lease. 

I am anxious, if possible, to ascertain if there is any tradition among any family 
of my name in any part of England, of four brothers, as above named, having come 
to Ireland about the time named ; and also whether by the aid of what I have 
stated about the coat of arms, my family can be identified with any of the name at 
present living in England.

CASTER Hebald. 

A deed, dated 3 May, 1633, relating to tliis ancient family, is in the possession of 
OharleB Golding, Esq, 

It Appears to be the settlement made shortly after the marriage of Eeynald {tic) 
Bray, son and heir apparent of Sir Giles Bray, of Barrington, Knt., with Martha, 
daughter of Peter Humble, late of Goosehayes, co. Bssei, Esq., deceased, whereby 
the said Sir Giles settles his manors of Great and Little Barrington and his lands 
there on trustees (viz. Sir Robert Quarles, of Romford, co. Essex, Knt., and John 
Hide, of London, gent.) to use of himself for life, remainder to his wife Dame 
Anne for her life, remainder to said Beynald Bnw for life, remainder (as to the 
capital maosioD and part of the estate) to said Martha for her life, remainder to 
tsaue of said Beynald in tail male, remainder to Edmnnd Bray, second son of said 
Sir Giles, for liie, and his issue in like manner ; and (as to the residue of the 
estate after the death of said Reynald Bray) to the issue of the said Regnald in 
tail general, with remainder to said Edmund and his issue in like manner, remainder 
(lu to the whole] to the right heirs of the said Sir Giles Bray. 

This Beginald Bray died in hia father's lifetime, leaving a son, Edmund, who 
had inherited his mother's lands in Essex before 16 March, 164^, as Sir Giles, by 
his will of that date, desires the Court of Wards to raiae money for him out of 
those lands and not out of his (own) lands, co. Gloucester, Oxon, and Berks. This 
will was proved by Dame Ann Bray, 14 May, 1641, and a^ain 19 November, 1657, 
by Edmund Bray, Es<j., son and nest of kin to t«stator, who appears to have been 
aJnerwards made a knight. 

SigmUura md Seal of Sir Gila Bray, of Bam»glo*, K»iyU,from Deed dattd 3 Mag, 1633. 

The seal appended to deed is quarterly of four coats, of which the first and second 
STB both the well-known coats of " Bray." The third quarter is for " Monington," 
and is allowed by Cooke, Clarenceui, temp. Etiz., to "Monington, formerly of Corn- 
wall" [query if not Cornwall in Oifordshire]. In the Visitation of Herefordshire 
made in 15B9 it is quartered in the second and third quarters by the Moningtons of 
that county, and stated in a marginal note to be the coat with which Sir John Lawton, 
Knt., sealed (temp. Ed. III.), whose daughter and heireas, Eleanor, married into 
the family of Monington. The fourth quarter is for " Harman," though, strangely 
enough, it also is quartered in the second and third quarters by the Harmans of 
Taynton, in Oxfordshire, — the first and fourth being " Sable three currycombs 

A short pedigree will show more clearly how these quarterings are brought in, 



and tbe relationsbip of the different parties to one another and to the ancient 
family of Bray, Lords Braye.

Skippon Family (p. 37). — In the notice of the Skippon family introductory 
to the entries copied from the Bihle and given in the July number, it is said that 
Philip, the grandson, buried at Edwardstone in 1716, appears to have been the last 
male of the name. This is not strictly correct, for although he was undoubtedly 
the last male descendant of the Parliamentary General, there were persons who 
bore the name, and whom I believe to have been descendants of collaterals, living 
within the present century, and the name is not extinct in Norfolk even now. 

Of the immediate line to which the General belonged the following additional 
particulars may not be unacceptable : — 

William Skippon, Esq., who died at Tavistock on 1 January, 1633/4, was pos- 
sessed of an estate at Foulsham, "Wood Norton, and Bintry, in Norfolk, which, by 
his will, dated 5 August, 1631, he devised *' to Captaine Philippe Skippon, eldest 
Sonne of my brother Luke Skippon," and the heirs male of his body. Luke 
Skippon, brother of said Philip, and Francis Skippon, son of Francis Skippon de- 
ceased and testator's nephew, were in remainder. Luke Skippon, the testator's 
brother and heir at the time of his death, was sixty years old.* 

Luke Skippon, of W^est Lexham, gent., the brother, died there 20 September, 
1638 ; Philip Skippon, described as " of Foulsham, Esq.," his son and heir, being 
forty years of age.t On the same day, 20 September, 1638, probate was granted 
iio Anne Skippon, his relict, of " notes taken for the making of the last will and 
Testament of Luke Skippon of West Lexham gent,," dated 4 September, 1688, by 
the Archdeaconry Court of Norwich. In these, Philip, his son, was the principal 
devisee. He also mentions Luke Skippon, his grandchild, and his grandchildren, 
William, Luke, and Christopher Sheue. Mary, his daughter, had married Chns- 
topher Shene, Eector of Cockley Cley. 

The General's will, dated 20 February, 1659, and proved 25 October, 1660, is 
referred to by the Eev. Thomas Quarles in the * History of Foulsham.* J 

Upon this I shall be much obliged for answers to the following queries : — 

who was Dame Katherine (Phillips), his second wife ? 

Which of the daughters named in the Bible entries was Mrs. Bragge, who had 
been the widow of Colonel Eolfe ; and who were these two husbands ? 

Which other of the daughters besides Mrs. Meredith was married, and to 

On the monument in Acton Church to the memory of Mary, the first wife, 
Skippon quarters the following coats, — 2. Azure a chevron between three crosses 
pattee or ; 3. Barry of eight argent and vert, a griffin segreant or : and impales — 
Ermine three lions passant in pale gules. A knowledge of these may lead to the 
discovery of his maternal descent. 

Luke Skippon, the General's brother had been presented to the Bectorj of 
Hingham, in 1638, by Sir Thomas Wodehouse, the patron, on the erroneous sup- 
position of the death of the incumbent, who reappeared ; and in 1642 he was pre- 
sented, by the same patron, to the Eectory of Litcham, which he appears to nave 
held until 1662, during some part of which incumbency he resided in the adjoining 
parish of Mileham ; and there six children, by Elizabeth, his wife, — two sons, both 
of whom died in infancy, and four daughters, — were baptized, the first on 7 
January, 1642/3, and the last 2 November, 1650. He had the degree of D.D. con- 
ferred upon him in 1660, by Royal licence. In 1662 he was Vicar of West Braden- 
ham as well as of South Lynn. His will, wherein he is styled Eector of Wissing8ett,§ 
is dated 3 August, 1674, and was proved in the Archdeaconry Court of Norwich

§ His name does not appear in Blomefield*s List of Rectors, and the roisters of Whissonaett 
of that period unfortunately are not in existence. 


12 July, 1676, by Elizabeth, bis widow and relict. Frances, bis eldest daughter, 
was tben wife of Jobn Franklin, Bector of Tittlesball ; Susan, wife of " Mr. Cle- 
ment Higbam, Eector of Scalthorp ;* Jane, wife of Eoger Haineswortb, of West 
Lynn ; and bis other daughters, Mary and Anne, were also tben living, of whom both 
died unmarried. Dr. Skippon, in his will, also names *' bis noble kinsman. Sir Jobn 
Bladwell,of Kougham,*' and his nephew, Mr. Philip Skippon, of Wrectbam. The 
three married daughters all loft issue. Upon the monument of a single daughter 
in Swaffham Church, he is described as "eminent for his piety, learning, and 
loyalty." In the last named virtue a striking contrast with bis brother. 

I have many notes of persons of this family of earlier date, derived from wills, 
court rolls, ana parish registers. The prevalent baptismal names were Luke and 
Bartholomew. Bartholomew Skippon was living at East Lezbam in 1541, as in the 
same year was Thomas Skippon at Weasenham ; the latter bad a brother Luke, 
and they continued in those parishes for several generations, but I have been un- 
able at present to trace the ascending link connecting William and Philip, the first 
before mentioned, with any of them. I also find the name in several other parishes 
in Norfolk. A Luke Skippon was residing as recently as 1808 at Crimplesbam, 
where several of his children were baptized. 

Can any of your readers inform me whether William Skippon, who died in 
January, 1633/4, resided at Tavistock in any public capacity ? The family seems 
to have bad some early connection with the south of England, as another William 
Skippon, a yeoman, wno died at East Lezbam in 1578, gave legacies to the towns 
of Cnard and Cullington.

In Memory of Mary Dymoke, widow 

of Edward Dymoke ol Wadingworth Esq'. 

She was first married to John Booth of 

Market-Eaisin Esq' who 

lieth interr'd near this Place, and was 

one of the Daughters & coheiresses of 

John Loddington of Fonaby Esq' in 

Lincolnshire, who died the 22"^ 

• of June 1740 

Aged 90 Years. 

John Booth, Esq., of Market Basen, by will, dated 15 March, 1685, and proved 
26 June, 1686, devises his lands in Killin^holme and East Halton, and the Kectory 
there, to his executor, for bringing up his younger children until his eldest son 
shall come to twenty-one years of age. He gives legacies to his second son, 
Thomas, his third son, William, and to his daughters Ann and Mary ; and makes 
Marv, his wife, executrix. 

Probably his eldest son's name was John, as by deeds of 17 and 18 of Decem- 
ber, 1710, John Booth, of Market Basen, Esq., eldest son and heir of John Booth, 
late of Market Basen aforesaid, and heretofore of Harpswell, Esq., deceased, con- 
veys to Henry Ajidrews, of Osgodby, Esq., and his heirs, a manor and lands in 

The daughter of the said Henry Andrews married a John Booth, Esq., who 
died in the lifetime of his said father-in-law, leaving three sons, Henry Booth, 
John Booth, and Thomas Booth ; and administration of the goods of the said John 
Booth, deceased, was granted on the 5th of August, 1719, to the said Henry An- 
drews, as grandfather, guardian, tutor, and curator lawfully elected and admitted 
for his said grandchildren. This appears from the will of the said Henry Andrews, 
dated December, 1727, and proved at Lincoln 9 July, 1731. 

Henry Andrews in his said wiU devises his rectory and tithes and lands in East 
Halton to his said grandson Henry Booth and his heirs^ and also devises lands in 
Killingholme to his grandsons John Booth and Thomas Booth respectively. 

The last mentioned Heniy Booth was of Thorpe Hall, co. Lmcoln, and sold 
the Halton estate to the first Lord Yarborough, and had an illegitimate son, John 
Booth, a merchant of Hull, who was living there in 1802. 

John Booth, brother of Henry Booth, lived and died at Hull, a merchant. 

Thomas Booth, the younger brother of Henry Booth, died Vicar of Market 
Basen in 1764, as is already mentioned. He and Anna Maria, his vrife, were first 

Their son John Booth was of Spilsby, co. Lincoln, and married to his second 
wife at Boston, co. Lincoln, 16 February, 1779, Elizabeth "Worley, of Boston. He 
was buried at Boston, 1st January, 1783, aged 40, and left a surviving son, Henry 
Booth, baptized at Boston 24 May, 1781, who in 1804 was a Lieutenant in the 
2nd West Yorkshire Militia.

LA.WSKNCS AND "Washikotoii (p. 46). — " B. G. L." will find in the ' Gentle- 
man's Magazine ' (1815-16 and 1829) a series of papers on various families named 
" Lawrence," by my kiusman, the late James Lawrence, author of ' The Nobility of 
the British Gentry.' 

In these exhaustive — or nearly so — papers (albeit full of errors) occurs a match 
between a Lawrence of Ashton Hall and a Washington of Washington, both in co. 

The late G(eo. Lawrence, of Cowerfield, Wilts, was not of a Wiltshire family, but, 
like the author in question, was descended from John Lawrence,* of Jamaica, son 
of Henry Lawrence, President of the Council of State under the Protectorate. 

The whole of these latter genealogical matters will be found in the Lawrence 
wills, recorded in the Lyon Office, Edinburgh, etc. J. H. L.-A.

Washington." See Aubrey's ' Wilts Collections,' edited by the Bev. J. E. Jackson,

TlfeB Sanderson family claim descent from the Saundersons of Yorkshire and Notts, of whom a 
pedigree is giyen in Thoroton's ' Antiquities of Notts,' p. 474 ; of this fiunily was Robert Saunder- 
9on, Bishop of Lincoln, and the Saundersons, Viscounts Caatleton. James, the sixth Viscount, was 
created a Peer of England in 1714 as Baron Saunderson of Saxby, and was advanced to the Earl- 
dom of Caatleton in 1720. Upon his death, s. p., in 1723, all the honours became extinct, and he 
bequeathed his large estate to his cousin (on hia mother's side), the Earl (third) of Scarborough, 
who thereupon, by Act of Parliament, assumed the additional surname of Saunderson. 

The arms borne by the late Captain Sanderson and by his father and grand&ther are, — Palv of 
six argent and azure a bend sable. Crests : — 1, A hound passant argent, armed and langued gules ; 
and 2, A palm-tree, from the branches on either side pendant a hawk's lure. 

Names of Places (p. 12). — The term "Langdon Hill " is a pleonasm, Lang- 
don being=" long hill *' (lanq-dun). Chad well was named from St. Chad (Cedda), 
'I'ilburj probably means the fortification on the river Till : conf. Tilburg, a town of 
the Netherlands ; Tilbrook, Beds ; Till, a river of Northumberland, f . q. the Sill, 
t. e. Ill with a sibilant prefixed, from the Welsh //»', a stream. Grays and Thur- 
rock were doubtless named from the respective owners: the former name is 
probably derived from Gray, in France, dep. Sa6ne ; the latter would seem 
to be an augmentative of a surname, Torr or Thor. The name Aveley is from 
a proper name, Alvid, Alfmth, and Saxon leag, a pasture, meadow. The first 
part of the name Homdon is probably a corruption ; it may have the following 
meanings, thorn, tower, water, heron, Ockendon signifies the oak (ac-dun) ; 
Bainham, the dwelling on the Bain, perhaps the ancient name of a neighbouring 
stream, from ran, ren, rin, run, found in fluvial names, and = water, stream ; com. 
the Khine, the Beno, fiume principale del Bolognese. Mucking may mean a 


" great meadow." Stanford-le-Hope was named from a stone or paved ford, and 
the old Norsk hop, 6p, a recess (the bay formed by the winding of the Thames is 
called by seamen the " Hope "). Wennington might translate the " marsh town " 
(conf. tne Cornish win-nickf a marsh), or it may be from yicyii (Welsh, id.)^ 
" white." There is a Wennington, cos. Lancaster and Hunts ; and Winninc^ton, cos. 
Chester and Stafford. Bulphan, or Bulfan, might possibly translate " bulrs-fen ;" 
Stifford, "steep-ford"; but I am disposed to consider it another form of Stafford, 
which I take to be from sfead-fardj the ford of the place (A. S. steeUt-ford). The first 
syllable in Fobbing (Domesday Phohinge) is doubtful. In the time of Edward the 
Confessor, Corringham is said to hare belonged to one Sigar, and was, perhaps, 
originally Sigarham, afterwards Scigarnham, and finally corrupted to Curringham 
and Corringham ; Corringham is, however, the name of a place in Lincolnshire. 
The last syllable of Orsett may be from sett, a place, and the first syllable from or 
= water; or it would corrupt from Horseheath. Horseheath, in Cambridgeshire, 
is commonly pronounced Horsett. It. S. Cuaknock. 

Oray'9 Inn Square. 

Abchbold. — The arms of Bichard Archbold, of the Middle Temple, Esq. (third 
son of Edward Archbold, of the College of Worcester), who entered his pedigree 
in the Visitation of London in 1634, having then two sons living, were, — ^Argent 
a lion rampant between six fleurs-de-lis sable. 

Argent sem^e of fleurs-de-lis, a lion rampant sable, is the coat of William 
Archbold, D.D., sometime Vicar of St. Peter's, Comhill, London, whose son, Henry 
Archbold, also entered his pedigree in the above-named Visitation. Jane, widow 
of Dr. Archbold, and daugnter of William Billingsley, of Stepney, co. Middlesex, 
gent., died January, 1635, her funeral being recorded in the College of Arms. 

G-. E. Adams, Lancaster, 

Abms. — On a cup in my possession are the following arms, to whom did it belong ? 
Per pale or and azure, on a fess between three greyhounds courant counterchanged 
a fleur-de-lis between two lozenges gules, impaling azure a chevron or between 
three hedgehogs of the last. Crest : On a wreath or and azure an arm embowed 
or holding a stork, wings expanded proper. Motto : '* Virtus semper viridis." 


CHA.VA8SE. — Can any correspondent give the arms of this family ? The foun- 
der in England, Claude Chavasse, is believed to have come from Dauphine. 

R Woof, F.S.A. 

OnUdhall, WoreeHer, 

Leioh of Bttshall. — ^A pedigree of this family, with several additions in 
MS., will be found in the copy of Shaw's * History of Staffordshiro ' in the British 
Museum, pross-mark 1854 b. This family, which was the elder line of the Lords 
Leigh of Stoneleigh, is now, I believe, quite extinct. Lewis Leigh had issue, 
according to Shaw, Edward and Bichard. This Kichard married Elizabeth, daugh- 
ter of John Clark, of Newark, co. Notts, and had issue Eichard (miscalled William 
by Shaw), who married Ann, daughter of Josiah Jarvis, of Atherstone, co. War- 
wick, by whom he had the Eev. William Leigh, Eector of Pulham, co. Norfolk, 
and Frances, wife of William Gray, by whom she had an only son, William, who 
died 8. p. The Rev. Wm. Leigh married Mary, daughter of . . . Proud, and died 
8. p., 11 of April, 1858, and was buried at Pulham, St. Mary. 

A. Leigh. 

Bath, Price Cantlow. — Prior from 1489-1499. Archbishop Morton visited 
Bath in his time. He restored St. Catherine's and St. Mary Magdalene's Chapel, 
near Bath. Can any one tell me more about him ? W. S. S. 



It has long been a problem to those who have studied the genealogy of Arch- 
bishop Cranmer, whether the Cranmers of Warwickshire can be descended from 
the Cranmers of Aslacton, in Nottinghamshire. The name constantly occnrs in 
the registers of Tanworth, and of the adjoining parishes in the rural deanery of Al- 
cester from 1626, but thei*e is no clue to their earlier history, although the registers 
of Tanworth are said to begin in 1558. It is, at least, a curious coincidence that 
Samuel Cranmer, Alderman of London, who died in 1040, seised of the manor of 
Upper Itchington in Warwickshire, and whom we know to have been descended 
from the Archbishop's eldest brother, is said on his monument at Astwood Bury 
(Bucks) to have been bom at Alcester about 1575. The Alderman was an only 
SOD, and his father John Cranmer was bom and bred at Aslacton, so that it is 
difficult to connect him with the Warwickshire family : still the fact remains, that 
his &ther was living at Alcester in 1575, and that there were families of the' same 
name in the same district fifby years later. The following extracts supply materials 
for a pedigree of the Cranmers of Warwickshire, and will, I hope, induce some 
local antiquary with greater knowledge and opportunities to pursue this interesting

The Cbobfielb ob Cbossfield Family. — ^I have in my possession a Bible, 
the entries in 'which are as follows : — 

New York June 28,1758, 1, Stephen Crosfield (son of William and Elizabeth Cros- 

field of the town of I)orton* in Lancashire in Qreat Britain) entered into the 

holy state of matrimony with Mary, youngest daughter of Johannes and Mar- 

garetta Kerfbyl of this same city of iN'ew xork. 
July 10, 1765, was bom our beloved son Stephen and baptized by Bev. John 

Oglevie in St. George's Chapel. Witnesses Mr. Andrew Gautier and Eliza- 
beth his wife. 
July 16, 1769 My beloved wife Mary departed this life in the 441^ year of her age, 

and was the next day interred in the family vault of Andrew G-autier Esq., in 

Trinity Churchyard. 
May 21, 1777 I, Stephen Crosfield married mv second wife, Hannah Disbury of 

New York, daughter of GhHffin and Hannan Disbury of New Jersey. 
February 20, 1778, was bom our beloved son William, and baptized by the Bev. 

Mr. Bagley. Witness Henry Newton and Ann Crosfield. 
August 15, 1780, Our beloved son William departed this life, and was next day 

interred in the family vault of Andrew Gautier Esq. in Trinity Church vard. 
August 23, 1782 was bom our beloved daughter Elizabeth, and baptized by the 

Bev. Mr. Benjamin Moore. Witness, Henry Newton, Ann Crosfield and 

Elizabeth Dunhar. 
May 4, 1790 Mv beloved son Stephen departed this life aged 24 years and 10 

months, and interred in the family vault of Andrew Gautier Esq., in QVinity 

Church yard. 

This Stephen Crosfield came to New York prior to 1745, accompanied by three 
sisters, — Ehzabeth, who married Andrew Gautier; Mary, who married William 
Newton ; and Ann, who died a spinster. 

Can any one give me information of this family in England P 

JoHK S. Gavtieb. 

64, Madiion Avenue, New York City* 

respectiDg him beyond the mention of him in the wills, 1648 and 1657. It has been supposed that 
he may be possibly identical with Wm. Skinner, merchant, and Alderman of HuU, who died 19 
September, 1680, in the fifty-third year of his affe, according to the inscription on his ffravestone in 
the church of Holy Trinity, Hull. Proof of identity is so far, however, not forthoommg. Alder- 
man Skinner used the same arms that were granted to John Skrnner, 1567. Any iaots tending to 
establish a connection between him and the Thornton fiimily will oblige, and may be communicated 
direct to Mr. Jackson. The date of the age of Alderman Skinner on his monument may not be 
quite correctly given. Monumental inscriptions are not always to be entirely depended upon as 
evidence. An instance occurs in this family. William Skinner, of Thornton College, son of Sir 
Vincent, is stated on his monument to hare died " the 7th day of August, 1626," whereas the entry 
of his burial in the register is on the 8th of August, 1627 ; the latter year being supported by his 
will, which, dated 3rd August, 1627, was proved at Lincohi, Ist February, 1627-8. 

^ Be la Pryme, the Yorkshire antiquary, in his MS. History of Hull, says, — " 1639. In this year 
Mr. Andrew Marvel, Lecturer of this town, a very learned and ingenious and florid man, going over 
the Humber in a small boat or skiff, with Madam Skinner, of Thornton College, and a younff couple 
who were going to be married, a storm rose on a sudden, which, in a little time, overset the boat, so 
that they were all drowned, and never found or heard of afterwards." The term Madam and Mis- 
tress was the usual description of yoimg unmarried ladies of position formerly. 

* There is no township of Dorton in Lancashire, but there are three townships called Balton,— ' 
one in Fumcss, one near Wigan, and a third near Kendal. If the Crosfields were Quakers, whieli, 
from the printed extracts, does not seem to have been the case, Dalton-in-Fumess, which is near 
Gtoorge Fox's adopted home, was probably the place from which they sprang. 




I have just compiled the following pedigree of this family, entirely from original 
and authentic sources, and should be glad of any additions to it. It was un- 
doubtedly of French origin, although the later members of it appear to have given 
the name a Spanish termination. It is desirable to know whetner the male line is 
extinct. Joseph Ljsmvei^ Chesteb,

glad to know if John Croxton, Esq., of Norley Bank, Cheshire (whose daughter 
Emma married Bev. Eowland Egerton, who assumed the additional name of War- 
burton in right of his wife, niece of Sir Peter Warburton, Bart., and of Elizabeth, 
his wife, daughter of Edward, eleventh Earl of Derby), was descended from the 
ancient family of Croxton of Croxton Hall, Cheshire, and, if so, why the descendants 
of the above Rowland Egerton- Warburton quarter the arms of Croxton as '< Sable a 
lion rampant argent, debruised by two bends engrailed or," whereas the coat of 
Croxton of Croxton is " Sable a lion rampant argent, debruised by a bend com-

Saltitt. — John, second son of Sir Roger Salvavn, of Herawell, died b. p. 19 
Ken. VI., leaving his property to the son of his eldest sister, Alice, who married 
Henry Wilton. She had two sons by Henry Wilton, viz. — 

1. John Wilton, alias Salvin, who inherited his uncle John Salrin's fortune, 
but died, aged 16, 21 Hen. VI. 

2. Henry Wilton, «Iias Salvin. 

Can any correspondent acquainted with Durham genealogy inform me what 
were the arms borne by Henry Wilton, who married Alice SaTvin, or by the sons 
of the said Alice, viz. John Wilton, alios Salvin, or her aecond son, Henry Wilton, 
alias Salvin F 

A Somersetshire family named Wilton appears, from an Alphabet of arms in 
the Heralds' College, to have borne, Sable three water-bougets argent ; which coat 
is also found (but ^iven to another name) in a splendid shield of Percy quarterings 
in Edmonson's ' Baronagium.' 

It ia a curious coincidence that the'Salvayns descended from a coheir of Robert, 
Lord Hos of Warke, with which name three water-bougets are, with variations of 
tincture, constantly associated. 

In indexes to pedigrees, and, perhaps, in Visitations duly enrolled, the name 
Wylton and Witton are considered synonymous ; perhaps arising from some self- 
evident, but slight alteration in crosemg io/A the 1 and the t in entering the name. 

Wye-to\ni and Wity-towa have each an aqueous derivation, and this is re- 
cognized in the water-bougeta which both Wiltons and Wittons assume as partly 
or entirely their armorial bearings. 

There is a family of Johnson using the same arms as the Wiltona, viz. Or a 
water-bouget sable, on a chief of the second three bezants. E. W. 

Palmeb. — . . , Palmer, of Lincoln's Inn, Eing's Mes- 
senger, married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomaa Bate.t of 
Ashby de la Zoucb, gent. This Mr. Palmer bad an estate in 
Ireland. His seal, a woodcut of which is here given, is now 
in my posseaaion. Arms : Argent a bend sable chained with 
three trefoila alipped of the field between two pellets. 
Crest : An arm erect holding a trefoil. I should be glad to 
have some account of this Mr. Palmer and hia antecedents.

* Nnmben of these names are not in the pedigree, and the majority, no doubt, belong to col- 

t The pedigree says, " Borne 1578." No other entry appears. Possibly this Tliomas was the 
eldest son, and dying an infant, the name was perpetuated in tne Thomas of 1678. By a marriage- 
settlement of 1708, and by the wardens' books, this Thomas and his father, Randle, were the first 
to settle in Kingsley (about tho end of Klizabcth^s reign), where they occasionally dwelt, as did John 
and Bandolph, the sons of Thomas, at the Banke House, the Brooke House, and Kingsley Grange, 
w HwnU 

X Along with " Ric. Stanley fil. Thome." Edward Stanley and Jane, his second wife, of Alran- 
ley, were living about this time. He was of the house of Hooton. 

§ He was oo- warden of Frodsham parish, and his father, Thomas, made a curious settlement, 
proTiding that if he refused the office his moiety of certain lands should go to his second brother, 
Bandolph. In 1672, his son John was also Cluirchwarden, along with Willm. Hyde, of Cattenall, 
in Kinnlej, Esq., a junior branch of the Hydes of Hyde, a quo the younger house of Clarendon, 
temp. Jac. II. 

II The registers being yery rough from 1642 to 1670, this Bandolph is described in a dupli- 
cate entry as of Kingsley.

* The son of Dr. Gastrell, Bishop of Chester, author of * Notitia Cestriensis.* 

t She must hare reached an extreme old ase, as she was married in the reign of Henry YII., 
and this may account for the somewhat special rorm of entry, although her age is not mentioned. 

t These appear to be two Joans, probably mother and daughter ; but query whether it really 
means Joan, tne widow of John HeUby, gentleman. Among sereral other entries of death in a 
Breeches Bible of 1610 are the three, Blanche, Margery, and Joan, in August and September, 1590, 
and ther are there described as the daughters of Randle Helsby, of Hebby. — And tee pedigree,

I, the Reverend William Charles Cotton, Clerk, Master of Arts, Vicar 
of the Parish and Parish Church of Frodsham, do hereby certify that I have 
examined the Extracts above mentioned relating to the family of Helsby, of 
Helsby, Kingsley, AJvanley, Frodsham, and Overton, and compared the 
same with the original Entries in the Register Books of the said Parish, 
and do hereby declare the same to be true and correct copies thereof. 
Dated at Overton, this tenth day of December, one thousand eight hundred 
and seventy. 

Wm. Chas. Cotton, M.A., 

Vicar of Frodsham. 

* A double entiy, on separate pages. 

t This description, " Motehoiise/' must refer, not to James, but to Bandle, who occasionally 
resided there, but which residence for nearly the whole of the seventeenth century was let as a farm. 
In the registers and parish accounts it is occasionally called ** Helsby Hall" and " Helsby House/* 
though another Helsby House existed in Alvanley, also an occasional residence of the family. 
In 1637, John Blimston occupied a pew on the north side of the parish church for *' Helsbey 
House" (meaning the Moathouse or Hall), as tenant, after the wooden and oldest portion of the 
mansion had been destroyed by fire, temp. Jac. I. The remains of the building, being of stone, 
were then let as a farm, and in " 1732. April 6. Mary Burgess of Helsbey Hall " (the wife jot 
daughter of the then tenant) is mentioned in the registers as being buried ; but some time afterwards 
a second fire reduced the place to ashes. 

X In A.D. 1639, " Mr. Bandle Helsby and John, Lord Viscount Savage,*' are mentioned in an 
old " Seat Bole " as holding certain pews in the north-east corner of Frodsham Church, or the Helsby 
Chapel, and several other pews in other parts of the church were then held by other members of the 
&mily ; but before 174f9 all the nort-h-east pews were in the hands of purchasers, and only one or 
two remained. Notwithstanding all this and Frodsham evidently being the principal burial place 
(Alvanley Chapel was another), not a scrap of memorial-stone is to be found, though the aged 
sexton says that the remains of a rotten escutcheon and two banners (which had from time to time 
dropped in pieces on the site of the high-altar) on being taken down, crumbled to dust, with their 
staves, in the hands of his father upwards of half a century ago, when the church was undergoing 
its accustomed whitewashing. One remote branch of the family attributes this absence of tombstones 
to a fancied fraud, and tells an amusing story of his father some sixty years since taking down hi^ 
attorney (or, perhaps the attorney taking down his fatiier) to Frodsham and Buncom, where they 
discovered the gravestones turned upside down, appropriated to other usee, with their in>oription8 
de&ced, registers mutilated, and other signs of malpractices, all for the purpose of keeping them out 
of certain estates, which, it is needless to say, belonged to another line, and which generation after 
generation had wasted away, till the sale of the last acre a century ago and the removal of the 
family to another part of the sliire.

The woodcut represents a fine gold mounting to a lady's Malacca walking-cane,

walking-cane of " Johanna Oibaon." Edwass Mortoit.

CAPTAiTf Newboh, B.M. — Can any correspondent throw light on the parentage 
of this gentleman? In Schomberg's ' Naval Becords,' vol. i. p. 840, he ia thus 
mentioned : — " Bear-Admiral Stevens blockading Pondicherry, sent the boats of 
his division, headed by Capt^n Newsome, who cut out two frigates with great gal- 
lantry." In ' Gentleman's Magazine for 1759, amongat the vesaela which suucd 
from Einsale is named the ' Boman Emperor,' of twenty guns, commanded by 
Captain Newsom. In his will, dated October, 1787, he is styled Capt^n Wm. 
Newson, K.N., and mentions his fuur daughters, — Sarah, wife of Ambrp^ Cor- 
deroy ; Mary Ann, wife of Geo. Paterson ; Caroline, wife of . . . Danp ; and 
Elizahot, subsequently wife of John Strongi'th'arm, engraver, of Pall llall (see 
Geni.'s Mag.). There can be httle doubt of the present firm of Strongi'th'arm of 
Pall Mall twing either descendants or collaterals of this last marriage.

The Codicil provides that as by the Will a great many are left Executors who are resident in 
London, a certain number resident at Madras shall be further appointed among whom is one John 
Ossamajor Esq. The Codicil is dated at Madras. An affidavit as to his handwriting describes him

Justinian Casamajor Esq. of Potterells in the Parish of North Mimms co. Hertford. Will dated 
2"^ September 1816. Two Codicils Proved 29'^ August 1820. Mentions his sons Justinian, George- 
John, Looio- Duncan, William-Charles and his daughters Emma, Henrietta, Caroline, Lydia and his 
■on in law John Yemon Esq. Desires to be buried as near to the remains of his Wife as possible, but 
the Codicil specifies that if he die at Pitton in Devonshire he is to be buried there. Alludes to Property 
in Bristol and some share in a Tontine property. His grandson Justinian, son of his son-in-law John 
Temon Esq. to assmne the Arms and name of Casamajor. Leaves Justinian, John, and William 
his sons Executors, but by Codicil revokes the appointment of Justinian, Also a M' Newman his 
friend, who is the Executor that proves, power being reserved to the others. Mentions also consi- 
derable property in the Island oi Antigua. John by the concluding portion would seem at that 
time to nave bfien abroad in the East Indies. The Will is of great length, and particularizes the 
disposition of some of his Jewels and Rarities with some articles of Yertu, of which he appears to 
have had a costly stock. The celebrated Macklin Bible is to continue as a heirloom in his family, 
also some Globes left him by General Hervey, and Yaluables from Lady Carhampton. Potterells 
would seem to have been devised by his friend Charles (or C. L. S.) Delach, to him and another as 
tenants in oommon. Yarious legacies are also bequeathed especially to his servants. The second 
Codidl aflbrds the reason for excluding Justinians name as one of the Executors, viz. not from any 
diminution of love, but that he, Justinian, is already much engaged. The property would seem to 
be generally in the Counties of Hertfordshire, Middlesex, and Lincoln.

columns if any of your readers can give information respecting William, John, or 
James Hayden, or Haydon, believed to be brothers, who emigrated from England 
(the first supposed from Devonshire) to Massachusetts, America, in 1630 and 
1635 ; or of Kev. John Warham, who was " an eminent minister of the Church of 
England in Exeter, Em.,"— emigrated with "William Hayden, 1630 ; or of Joseph 
Parsons, supposed of Great Milton, Oxfordshire, who emigrated about same time ; 
or of *' W" Wilcoxson, Lynen Wever," who, with wife and one child, emigrated, 
1635, from St. Alban's Parish, Hertfordshire, with certificates from parish minister 
and from magistrates, *' according to the Lord's order." Any information of these 
persons and uieir antecedents will be thankfully received.

Weight. — Peter, Nicholas, and Amthony Wright, brothers, emigrated firom 
England to New England about 1636-7, and settled first at Sangus (now Lynn), 
Massachusetts, afterwards at Sandwich, and subsequently removed to Oyster Bay, 
Long Island, N. T. Were they of the family of Edmund or of Nicholas Wright, 
of 3siat Lexham, Norfolk, temp. Henry YIIL, who married sisters, daughters of 
Edmimd Beaupre, of Beaupre Hall, Norfolk ? Nicholas is said to have had five 
children : what were their names, and what became of them ? Edmund married 
a second wife, Jane, daughter and coheir of Thomas fiussell, brother to John, Earl 
of Bedford, by whom be had six children, William, Edmund, Oeorge, Thomas, 
Edward, and Bridget. 

There was a William Wright, one of the Incorporators of Plymouth, in New 
England, in 1633, who removed to Sandwich, in Massachusetts, where he died in 
April, 1648. Was he the son of Edmund above named ? I. J. L. 

Hebon Pamilt of Gk)DMANCH£ST£B (p. 43). — In 1588, Edward Heron, of 
Stamford, was Eecorder of the borough. He was afterwards knighted. Purchased 
Cressy Hall of the Noels ; and, in 1607, appointed one of the Barons of the Ex- 
chequer. From the registers of St. G-eorge's, Stamford, I append the following 
extracts : — 

1583. Anne Heron y* wife of M Heron, bur. y* xiij day of Mav. 

1584. John Heron, the sonne of M' Heron bapt. the xj day oi Aprill being Wed- 

1600. The tenth day of October, Annabella Heron, the daughter of M' Edward 

Heron, gent, was bapt. 
1618. Eobart Heron & Isabel Walker were mar. the 14 of Nov. 

Sir Edw. Heron was one of the Commissioners appointed, 21 Jac. I., to inquire 
into the charities of the co. of Lincoln ; and in 1582, Edw. Heron (the same per- 
son), by deed dated 4th April, enfeoffed certain trustees therein mentioned and 
their heirs of a toft and bam, with the appurtenances, in the town and fields of 
Tallington (in this county), in trust, to apply the rents and profits towards the 
relief of the poor people of Tallington, and towards easing them from any assess- 
ment to be made for repairing the nave or body of the church, and for repairs of 
bridges, and towards payment of subsidies and ease of the poor people aforesaid, 
upon any assessment, fifteenths, or other lawfull, necessary, and charitable pay- 
ments, and rights, and for any other use, necessary and lawful cause whatsoever.

Hyde Family (p. 41).— Some years ago the original marriage-settlement of 
Dodding Braddyll, of Conishead Priory, Esq., M.P., was in my hands, and I re- 
member his wife's name was Mary, and that she was a daughter of Samuel Hyde, 
of London, Esq., deceased, and, I believe, Mary, his wife, then a widow ; the date 
was the 13 Anne, a.d. 1714. I had also the original pedigree, by Heard, Norroy, 
and Brooke, Bouge Croix (date the close of last century, and whica recited that the 
first eight or nine descents were copied from an ancient parchment roll in the posses- 
sion of Wilson Braddyll, of Conishead Priory, Esq.), which stated that Mary (Hyde) 
Braddyll died in 1771, and was buried at Woodford, with her husband, who was 
bom in 1689 and died in 1748. The emblazoned arms were those usually borne 
by the Hydes (azure a chevron between three mascles or), but whether they came 
from Lancashire or were of the Clarendon stock, I regret, I cannot say ; but I may 
observe that both before and after this marriage, the Braddylls held tenements in 
or about Chancery Lane and other parts of London, some of which may have come 
from the Hydes. A privately printed ' History of Samlesbury,' about to be issued 
from the Cfhiswick Press, will give a little fuller information ; and a copy of the 
pedigree of Braddyll, intended to be published in a future number of the * Miscel- 
nanea Genealogica,* (Quarterly Series,) will also show the marriage to which I 
allude. T. Hslsby. 

ErcHASD DE Haldinoham, circa 1300-20 (p. 22). — Mr. Havergal will find an 
Aldingham in Lonsdale, in Lancashire, once possessed by the Harringtons of Hornby 
Castle. It is not at all improbable that tne shire which gave to the Diocese of 
Hereford a ruler in a Lancashire man, Charles Boothe (the nephew of the brothers 
William and Lawrence Boothe, Archbishops of York, 1464-1480), should also have 
given to Hereford a prebendaiy a century and a half earlier. I think the first 
known Harrington was — according to a very good Blackburne pedigree, extracted 
from the Heralds' College (Norf k. X. and Xil.)— John de Harrington, of Ald- 
ingham, Parliamentary Baron (per writ), 18 Edw. II. to his decease 21 Edw. IIJ . 
Perhaps this information may lead to the discovery of an Aldingham pedigree and 
the identity of Bichard de (H)aldingham. T. Helbbt. 


GsANTHAM : Skinksb. — In vol. xlvii. of the publicatioiiB of the Surtees So- 
ciety (Dean Granville's Letters, ete.)> at page 119, is a letter of advice from the 
Dean to Mr. Corbett Skinner upon his going to sea in April, 1683. In this com- 
munication the writer exhorts young Slunner to do his duty " to S' Tho. Grantho," 
and others of the ship. I incline to think this is a mistake for Grantham. I shall 
be obliged by information as to this Sir Thomas Grantham, or Grantho, if such 
really is the name, — what ship he commanded, when and where he died, etc Also 
as to Corbett Skinner, — who he was, and what became of him.

Alice Wagstaffe by Licence. 
1689. Oct. 22, Alice Dau. to Peter Wagstafie of Manchester Baptized. 

These Wagstaffes were descended &om an old family long resident in the parish 
of Glossop, Derbyshire. Jomr Owen. 


PabVish Family. — In Cooke's * London Visitation of 1568 ' (Harleian Society), 
Henry Parvish, of London, merchant, is shown to have a son Thomas. Are any 
notices of this son extant, and where, if so, are they to be met with P One of the 
name, and probably the person noted {in the pedigree of the Colstons, was Head 
Master of Chester Grammar School from 1567 to 1578, and was, in other ways, 
evidently a man of some mark. T. Hughes, F.S.A. 


Abms. — The following arms, surmounted by a cardinal's hat, are from a seal in 
my possession : — On a saltire between four leaves (? holly) a heart pierced with 
an arrow ; surrounded by this inscription, " iror. apost. f. m. b. b. a." I am 
anxious to know to whom this seal belonged. Philip Langman. 

Lattok, Daunob, and Sychevyle Families. — I should be greatly obliged 
if any information can be afforded me concerning the families of Latton, Daunce, 
or Sychevyle. Several members of the two former are buried in the church of St. 
Micnael, Blewbury, Berks, and the brasses on their tombs still remain in good pre- 
servation. From one of these it appears that Sir John Daunce was " Counsellor 
& Surveyor General " to King Henry VIII. The Lattons seem to have come 
originally from Latton, in Wilts, thereafter to have resided in Bucks, and subse- 
quently to have settled at Upton and Chilton, Berks. I have been able to hear 
nothing of the Sychevyles, but their arms, viz. ermine three crossbows or, are 
quartered with those of Latton, Estbury, and Percy, on one of the brasses before 

I also enclose a copy of a shield of arms, apparently a chevron between three 
geese or swans, from the porch of the old manor-house of East Coker, Somerset, 
and I should be glad to know to what family it may be assigned. 

Wm. H. Bichabdson. 

Munn Family. — I have a deed, between Straneeways Mudd, citizen and 
stationer, of London, and William Martyn, of London, gentleman, relating to 
estates in the City, dated 1687. The deed is witnessed by Sol. Chilcott and John 
Bradshaw. I should be glad of any information of the family of Strangeways 
Mudd. Edwabd Mobton. 






The above is a facsimile of the signature of Mary, dowager Countess of Cas- 
silifl (the widow of John, 7th Earl) appended to a deed of bargain and sale, now 
in the possession of Dr. Fox, of Brislington, co. Somerset. 

It IB remarkable that this lady is wrongly described in all the Peerages. In 
Wood's edition of ' Douglas's Scotch Peerage, published 1813, she is described as 
" Miss Elizabeth (or Mary) Foix," and there is a curious note showing that the 
claim of peerage made by her and Lady Mordington was not allowed by the House 
of Lords, on 29 April, 1745, against any prosecution for '* suppressing the public 
gaming-houses kept by the said Ladies." This deed, which is dated 2 May, 1711 
(10 Anne), as between Mary Fos, widow relict of John Fox late of Lincoins Inn 
fields CO. Middlesex Esq., <& dau. of Thomas Weld, late Citizen &, Orocer of Lon- 
don dec^ of one part ; Eohert Fox^ eldest son & heir, Mary, Oountess Dowager of 
CamUSf one of zke daughters, James Fox & Oeorge Fox, two other sons, Anne Fox, 
Sp' & Joyce Fox Sp' two other of the dau's of the s^ Mary Fox of the second 
part ; and Daniel JDodson of Bernard's Inn, London, Gent, of the B^ part. Aifter 
reciting that the b^ Thomas Weld, by his will dat. 12 April 1678, devised 2 newly 
built messuages in Lombard street & Sherborne lane, London, in the parish of S^ 
ilary Wolnoth, to his wife Joyce Weld for her lifos with rem. to his d*u. the said 
Mary Fox, and that the said Joyce Weld is long since dead. It witnesseth that the 
8^ Mary Fbx, with consent of her said children, conveys the s** premises to the 
said Daniel Dodson in trust for the said James Fox & Anne Fox equally. 

The Countess's signature is witnessed by " Richard Bradley, next door to y« 
Ladj Cassilis at Hammersmith," and by '' William Shand, Lady Cassilis' Gentle- 

The seal for all parties is the same, viz. " A cross,- between 4 fleur de lis ;" the 
crest being " an eagle's head couped." Query if not the coat and crest of Banks of 
Yorkshire ? 

The following pedigree, which shows the ancestry of the Countess, is compiled 
from the Visitations of London in 1664 and of Hertfordshire in 1669 (both printed 
in italics), and from the will of Thomas Weld in 1678, the above deed, ana other

* Mr. Hunter had a suspicion that the second wife was the sister of the first. There is some 
allusion to an intrigue between Mr. Jenkyns and Lady Elizabeth Pawlet in the letters of Bachael, 
Lady Bussell. The old Baronetages, under Gtoodrick, speak of Mr. Jenkyns's first wife, showing 
that he had a second. The register at Dunnington calls the two children merely the children of 
** Tobias Jenkyns, Esq.," not mentioning any wife. 

t His seal shows a lion rampant regardant, with Monro on an escutcheon of pretence. Crest : 
a lion passant. Supposed to have been the Wm. Jenkyns who went on the Carthagenian expedition, 
1739, and to have been an officer in Colonel Robinson's Marines, raised in Yorkshire, afterwards in 
the Horse Guards. Colonel Eobinson was distantly related to W. J.'s family.

LATTGHTOif Family (Quarterly Series, Vol. II. pp. 258-9). — The following 
extract from a letter of the Eev. John-Haldenbj Clark in reference to the family 
of Laughton may not be uninteresting : — 

" Though, as you observe, the name does not seem to have been of any great 
importance in Lincolnshire, it occurs tolerably early. In 3 Eliz., Thos. Lau^ton 
and G-ilbert G-reene were Churchwardens at Aslackby in that co. : about the same 
date Peter Laughton was Curate of Bwerby (Peacock's * Church Monuments/ pp. 
31-2 and 80), and a William Laughton was ejected by the Act of Conformity m)m 
the living of Westborough, co. Line. At (Gainsborough in later times it seems to 
have obtained some hold; for the mother of James Cawthorne (bom 1719) of 
Clare Coll. Cambridge and Master of Tonbridge School was Mary d. of Mr. Edward 
Laughton of (Gainsborough. Cawthorne' s father was Thomas C. of Sheffield 
(Hunter's * Hallamshire,' orig. ed. p. 176) and at the election of 1832 (Northern 
Division of Lincolnshire) two Laugh tons voted for freeholds at Gainsborough — 
John Laughton of Q-ainsborough and Wm. Laughton of Doncaster. As to the 
later generations of the Laughtons of Eastfield, I find that Edmund Laughton 
when he voted at the (Great West Hiding Election of 1841 is described as of Dou- 
glas, Isle of Man, so that his descendants, if he left any, may be found, perhaps in 
that Island. At the same time a W. (Eastfield) Laughton yoted whose residence 
was Tickhill. Whether Eastfield refers only to his residence, or was his Christian 
name, which the Poll Book seems to assert, I am not aware.'* 

I conclude with portion of a communication from Charles Jackson, Esq., of 
Doncaster : — 

" There were some Laughtons in the part of the country called the Isle of 
Axholme, viz. about Epworth, Belton, etc., co. Lincoln. I have seen the name in 
deeds occasionally, but I have no notes concerning them.*'

* William Floyer was appointed Prebendary of Church Withington in Hereford Cathedral in 
1716, and was succeeded in his stall by William Willim in 1752.

It will be useful to those who are interested in the genealog]^ of Swayne to 
know, that at the end of the sixteenth century there were two distinct persons of 
the name of Elizabeth Swayne, both living in the parish of St. Lawrence, in the 
Old Jewr y, L ondon, and in no way related to each other. One of them, Elizabeth, 
widow of William Methwolde, married there 3 April, 1581, Edward Swayne, of All 
Hallows, Honey Lane, by whom she had several children. (Some account of her 
and her children by her first husband will be found in the ' Herald and Genealo^st,' 
vol. vi p. 699.) The other was buried there 6 February, 1625-6, as " Elizabeth 
Swayne, widow," and an abstract of her will, from the Commissary Court of 
London, is printed below.

he left in manuscript a work entitled " The Heraldry of Trees and Birds." As 
his work * Heraldry of Fish,* published by Van Voorst in 1842, is a most interesting 
book, as well as beautifully printed and illustrated, it is a pity that the companion 
work should remain unpublished. Can any of your readers say in whose posses-

probably some connexion, upon this island. . . . Vvnether a monastery existed here or not, Bellisle,

Hadelej, thoefore, Mri. Woolf haring fir»t darkened his face and hands with walnut learee, they 
set off in the dark» at eleven o'clock, to avoid the Eyelin miller, waded through the stream that 
tuned his mill, reaching Boaoobel House ahout five o'dock, having first heard at John Penderel's in 
their way, that Lord Wilmot was concealed at Mr. Whitgreave's of Moselej Hall, eight miles dis-

Although, so far as it goes, the pedigree of this family is correctly ^ven by Sir 
Bernard Burke in his ' Landed Gentry,' it is, neyertheless, defective in coUateral 
branches, and therefore it is hoped that the present contribution of authentic 
materials may lead to others investigating the subject. 

The family is supposed to have sprung from a soldier of fortune, who eame to 
England from the Low Countries during the Wars of the Roses, and probably 
about 1471, in whick year Edward lY. landed a body of Flemish auxiliaries in 

The elder line of this family has occupied Leybum Hall, Yorkshire, for four 
centuries, during which period it has given off, it appears, only two branches, viz. 
one settled on the borders of Durham pirea 1500, and the other in Westmoreland 
circa 1656. From these three there can scarcely be a question that all of the name 
in England are descended, considering local circumstances and the extreme rarity 
of the name.

Note to Chaddocx: Pediobeb (p. 134). — The writer of this note would be 
exceedingly obliged by any information respecting the family of Chaddock or 
Chattock. He has more than a thousand documents from temp. Henry 11. to the 
present time, containing some eight thousand names, from which he would be most 
luippy to reciprocate, as he has already done with more than one reader of this Mis- 
ceUany. There is a seal appended to one of them (anterior in date to this Visitation), 
with the cross of these arms upon a shield. Fairbaim's ' Crests ' has for Chadock^

deeds, but Mark Noble did, as he was decidedly of opinion that the name origi- 

* Dr. Yaoghan stated m the ' AtheiuBum ' in 1861, that this ohapel, Spreswell, Orington, was 
the place where WycUffe was bom. He quotes John Chapman, a gentlenum of respectable position 
in Osinsford, as saying, — ** Spreswel, or Speswel, stood close to the rirer Tees, hsJf a mue from 
WycliiTe and on the same side of the river. There was a chapel there, in which were married Wil« 
liam Tarker and Penitent Johnston, and their son John related the oocarrence to me, his mndson, 
many times. The above couple were the last married there, for soon after the chapel feU down." 
There seem to be many scattered descendants of this couple living in the North Riding of York* 
shire and one of them settled in Manchester, from Barnard Castle, fifty yeacs ago. 

t His will, proved at York, 1763, mentions his cousins William Yarker, of Ovingtoii} and Wmt 
Yarker, of Barton, yeomen. 


nated from the Chad of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (p. 55, Ingram), and Chad of 
Lichfield ; if so, which is most probable, a brother, or nephew, or cousin of the 
Bishop must have settled in the oiocese. The etymon of " Chadshunt," Warwick- 
shire, is clearly indicative of the presence of a layman of that name. The fol- 
lowing short scheme is confirmatory of Noble's opinion :-- 

In the * Teutonic Name System ' of Ferguson it states that " there is perhaps 
no more ancient or interesting name than Catomore. — Catumerus mentioned as we 
chief of a German tribe by Tacitus. Grimm (* Deutsche Grammatik ') holds this 
name to contain the most ancient form of Chad.- War. We have names exhibiting 
the yarious corresponding forms, yiz. Chad, Chaddock, Chattock, Chatto, and Catto. 
So I do not think there is any thing fsmciful in the suggestion that we have a name 
which can be traced up to the time of Tacitus. Ock comes to us through the 
Anglo-Saxon." The " more '* in Catomore is a suffix, and means illustrious. See 
also Forstemann's ' Altdeutsches Namenbuch.' " No language has dealings in 
meaningless terminations. In ancient Celtic oc means young. Ock, like ing, is a 
genetiyal suffix.*' — Philological Society's Papers. " According to historical origin, 
the syllable ock is Anglo-Saxon and Gothic." — Dr. Latham, Professor of the 
£nd[ish Language. 

The diminutiye ock in Chadock is a genetival suffix, expressiye of cadency, the 
same as the diminutiyal suffix ock in hillock means a little hill. The simple transi- 
tion from Chadock to Chattock in the spelling is orthographically correct. In the 
infancy of all languages, and particularly early English, d and t were as legitimately 
intercnangeable as i and j are now. " The letters most closely allied in phonetics 
are the most frequently interchanged in grammar." — Brofessor Latham. In old 
English, the words fatner and mother were spelt " fader and moder." This gires 
Chatock. The occurrence of the double t in Chattock is also strictly correct. 
** The reduplication of the consonant after a yowel, as in spotted, merely denotes 
that the preceding yowel is short." — Professor Latham. Tne name is eyen now 
daily spelt Chaddock and Chattock, according to true orthoepy or otherwise. The 
charters and deeds relating to the Chattock property commence tefiu>. Hen. 11., 
and it appears from their contents that the original tenure was booked or char- 
tered Saxon free land (see Wilkins, ' Leges Anglo- Saxonicse '), and one of these 
documents (a list of properties formerly held by the family) records one of them 
at Little Sutton, bearing towards Lichfield, and called *' Chadd[h]alle Felde," 
which had an ancient red-sandstone residence upon it in 1550. The old parish 
plans show that land was also held by the family at Sutton Coldfield, Penns, and 
Erdinston, all in a direct line to Castle Bromwich. The family name of Chad 
must nave been thoroughly impressed upon the diocese of Lichfield (formerly 
archiepiscopal and containing Chester and the whole of Mercia), for after only two 
hours' search in the registers there, besides Chaddock and Chattock, the following 
related names were found, viz. Chading (son of Chad), Chadd, Chadbom, Chat- 
bom, and Chatfield. This is the only search as yet of public records ; but viewing 
the case as it at present stands, either in an etymological or genealogical light, the 
soundness of the conclusion that Noble arrived at is apparent. 

There is no such place as Chaddock, excepting Chaddock Hall, the seat of this 
branch of the family (see Baines's ' Lancashure and Ordnance Map '). Chatbom 
or Chadbom is doubtless from a female descent, corresponding with Chadock in t^e 
male ; Chatfield, from the fore^ing " Chadd Feld '* ; Chetwind, from a village in 
Salop (see Harwood's ' Erdswick,' pp. 55-6) ; Chadwick, from the viUage of that 
name (see Shaw's Staff.), and so late as 1480 the affix ** de " to this name was not 
discontinued; and Chetwood^ from the name of a wood (see Kemble's 'Codex 
Diplomaticus Mvi Saxonici '). These places, together with Chat Moss, were all 
named from a Chad (see Baines, «up., as to latter). It is remarkable that the 
heralds assign arms to Chad, Chaddock, Chadwick, Chetwind, Chetwood, and other 
kindred names, corresponding with the affinity in their etymon. Dallaway, p. 362, 
says that marshalling by inescutcheon is sometimes on account of inhentance and 
special concession, as well as marriage.

Briosffoidht or, of the place or 'mouth of the I^rd of the Biscuits,' which occurred on a ford of 
the Amev, near Drummane bridge, at a distance of about six miles from Enniskillen. It appears 
that the Lord Justice, fearing the loss (through starvation) of the English Garrison of EnniskiUen, 
collected an immense quantihr of provisions, arms and stores, which he forwarded under the escort 
of an army to the relief of the Castle. Maguire, by his scouts, was aware of everything that was 
ffoing on, and he wisely thought that the best thine he could accomplbh was to intercept the convoy. 
This he did at Drummane, where, in the words of the annalists, ' a violent and fierce conflict, and a 
strenuous and determined battle, ensued between both parties ; but at length the Maguire and his 
forces defeated the other par^ by force of arms.* . . . Belview, the seat of John Cullum, Esq., may

Enniskillen stands. . . . After rounding rtaiw, or projecting headlands, without number, we pass by 
the rich island of Cleeniah^ anciently ClaeH'inis, or the ' sloping Island,' where in the sixth centuiy, 
saint Sinnell founded a monastery, which was destined in later times to become very famous^ and some 
remains of which were to be seen late in the last century. Alas for ecclesiologista I its walls were 
removed as building materials for the fort " (a portion of the monument erected near the town of 
Enniskfllen in honour of (General the Honourable Sir Qalbraith*Lowry Cole, G.C.B.) *' on Cole's Hill !

Sir Isaac Newton, of St. James's parish in the county. of Middlesex Enight, and Master and 
Worker of Her MiyeBty's Mint, yoluntanly maketh Oath that this Deponent hath a deed of feoiT* 
ment of John Newton, who was (as he hatn reason to belieye) his great grand&ther^s fiither dated 
the 19^ day of December, in the fourth yeare of Queene Elizabeth in the yeare 1562, wherein by the 
name of John Newton of Weetby in the County of Lincohi he settled his Estate in Wilstrope, in 
the Pttrish of Colsterworth in the said County, on his flye sons, Richard, George, Roberti Symon 
•od William Newton, and their heirs successiyely ; Which said John Newton, by agreement of time, 
and being called of Westby, he yerily belieyes to haye been the same person vrith one John Newton, 
whom he finds by an attested extract of the register of Basingthoip cum Westby aforesaid, to haye 
Iwen buried in that Church on the 22°<* day of December, Anno Dom. 1568, being the ^eare after 
the said feoffinent, and likewise to haye been the same person mentioned in a Visitation of Lmcolnshire 
made in or about the year 1634^ now remaining in the Herald's Colledge in London, there called John 
Newton first son dT John Newton of Westby aforesaid, and Brother of Thomas Newton, Richard 
Hewton, and William Newton, of Gunnerby, great grandfather of Sir John Newton, of Hather in the 
Mid County, Baronet ; he haying by tradition from his kindred eyer since he can remember, reckoned 
lumselfe next of kin (among the Newtons) to Sir John Newton's fiimily, and haying also, about fifty- 
four or fi%-five years ago, heard his grandmother Ascough (with whom he liyed at Wylstrope afore* 

* The original certificates are now in the possession of W. H. Gk Bagshawe, of Ford Hall. 


said alias Woolstrrae, till he was about eleven yean old, and who at that time frvqnently conTened 
with the Deponent s great Uncle Biohard Newton) Bay, that he, this Deponent, was or had been next 
heir att law to M' Newton, of Hather, until the birth of M' Newton's children, who were then two 
or three infants, and that he and they were cousins two or throe times remored, or words to that 

Surpose, and he, this Deponent, believing that his said Grandmother, upon the marriage of her 
aughter with his father, might learn the kmdred, and that his grandfather Newton, to promote 
the marriage, might be forward to speak of itt, representing himself cousin once remored, and 
next heir to said M' Newton, att that time six or seren yoara under age, afterwards father to Sir 
John Newton. And further this Deponent saith, that Sichard Newton first abore mentioned is 
greatgrandfiither and first son of the second John Newton, enjoyed the said estate at Woolstrope, 
according to the said Settlement, as appears by a deed in this Deponent's possession, of settlement of 
the said estate on this Deponent's fiiUier and mother, dated the 30*^ day of December, in the 15*^ 
yeare of King Charles the First, 1639, made by Robert Newton, the eldest son of the said Bichard, 
and this, Deponent's srandfiither, wherein are these words (and which formerly descended and came 
unto the said Bobert Newton after the death of Bichard Newton, father to the said Bobert Newfton), 
and this Deponent saith, that he finds by an attested copy of the register of Colsterworth cum 
Wooktrope aforesaid, that one Bichard Newton was buried there the 30*** day of April 1688 whom 
he belieres to be the same Bichard, his grandfather's father. And the said Bobert Newton he finds 
to hare been buried at Colsterworth aforesaid by the said extract, on the 20**^ day of September 
1641 leaving issue three sons, first, Isaac Newton, mentioned in the said deed of settlement of the 
15^ of KiogCharles the First, and whom he finds by Colsterworth register to have been baptized 
the 21'* of December 1606; secondly, Bobert Newton, baptized likewise the 27*^ of September, 
1607, who lived afterwards at Counthorp in the same county, and whose issue are still livmg : and 
thirdly, Bichard Newton baptized likewise there the 9*^ of April 1609, who lived at Colsterworth, 
and loft issue still remaining there. And further this Deponent saith, that the said Isaac, this De- 
ponent's fi&ther married Hannah daughter of James Ascough o! liCarket Overton in the Countv of 
Kntland, Gbntieman, and that he was buried at Colstwworth aforesaid, on the 6*^ day of October, 
1642, seised of the said estate of Woolstrope, which is descended to, and now is enjoyed by, this 
Deponent his only child, who was bom the 26^ of December, and baptized the 1'* day of January 
in the said yeare 1642. This deponent's mother, Hannah Ascough remarried to Barnabas Smith, 
Bector of North Witham in Lincolnshire, by whom she had issue Maiy, Benjamin, and Hannah, 
each of which have issue remaining. 

In witness whereof this Deponent hath hereunto put his hand and scale, this two and twentieth 
day of November, Anno Dom. 1705.

Sir John Newton, of Thorpe in the parish of Hather^ in the county of Lincoln, Baronet, aged 
about fifty-three years, oertifieth that his deponent hath heard his fiither Sir John Newton Baronet 
aged about seventy and three years at the time of his death, speak of Isaac Newton Master of Art* 
and Fellow of Trinity Colledge in Cambridge now Sir Isaac Newton Knight, Master and Worker of 
her Ma**"« Mint in the Tower of London and of St. James's Parish in the County of Middleiex, 
as of his Belation and Kinsman. And this deponent saith, that upon his view of a coppy of an entiy 
of the fiunily of NeWton, said to be entered m a visitation of t^e said county of jLincoln, made 
in 01* about the year 1684, and said to be now remaming in the Herald's CoUedge in London, be 
finds One John Newton of Westby in the said County, mentioned to have had four sons, viz. John 
Newton, Thomas Nbwton, Biohard Newton, and one William Newton of Gunnerby in the «id 
County^ which said William Newton was his great Grandfather, and believes the said Sir Ubbc 
Newton to be descended firom the said John Newton, son to John Newton of Weetby^ the CovOBhobl 
Ancestor, and first nlentioned in that entry, but knoweth not in what particular manner^ but tbat 
the said Sir Isaac hath alwaies been reckoned by him of the same name and blood with his fiunfly* 

In witness whereof the said Sit John Newton hath hereunto set his hand and seal this 21** if 
of November, in the year 1706* 






Sktkkee, OB Skinneb, op BoLnroBBOKE, AiTD Thobkton College, LmrcoLK- 
SHiBE. — I wish to take an opportunity of correcting the two first descents in this 
pedigree as printed in ' Miscellanea &enealogica et Heraldica,' Monthly Series, 
October, 1870 (antea, p. 81). Since that communication was made I have by 
chance discovered, at Lincoln, the will of John Skynner* of that city, merchant, 
dated dOth December, 1545 (date of probate torn off), who died, as appears from 
his Inq. p. m., on the 11th of October, 1545. From these documents it is now 
plainly seen that he — and not John Skynner, the Eeceiver of the Honor of Boling- 
broke and grantee of the arms in 1557 — ^was the father of Sir Vincent and Henry 
Skynner. It furthermore appears that the grandfather of the two latter was not 
Bobert Skynner, of Exeter, but a Bobert Skyimer, also of Lincoln, whose will is 
printed at length in * Notes and Queries,' Ist ser. x. 377. These circumstances 
explain the discrepancj alluded to in my note (p. 81) as to the arms borne by the 
Thornton Colle&;e family, to whom those forming the subject of the grant by Hervy 
do not seem to belong. The pedigree should commence thus : —

Some genealogical information respecting Dr. Claudius Gilbert, who was Yice« 
Provost of Trinity College, Dublin, 1716-35, and a very liberal contributor to its 
noble library, is desired. Having been appointed to the rectory of Ardstraw, in 
the diocese of DerrVf in July, 1735, he diea in October, 1742 ; and his executors 
were the Bev. Dr. Hodson, of Omagh, Bichard Warburton, £s<j., of Donnycamey,

Smith (p. 48). — Newton Smith, nephew of Sir Isaac Newton, was under age 
in 1712. He afterwards married Catherine, the daughter of William Wimberley, 
son of William Wimberley Qong residents at Bitchfield), postmaster of the district 
between Stamford and G-rantmun, who resided at Witham. On July 20, 1716, 
was baptized at Witham, Catherine, the daughter of Newton Smith and Mrs. 
Catherme ; on April 7, 1718, Isaac Newton Smith, son of the same ; and on Feb. 
25, 1719, Sarah, daughter of the same. These baptisms are from the register of 
South Witham. They afterwards lived at Barrowby, near Grantham, and to the 
father. Sir Isaac Newton was guardian. The signature of Benjamin Smith, with 
the date 1723, is on the cover of the Witham parish register, which commences in 
1686. In the King's Silver Office is the record of a fine. Trinity Term, 1761 ; 
William Manners, plaintiff, and Benj. Smith, clerk, and Benj. Brown and Sarah, 
deforciants, of messuages, cottages, and lands in South Witham. Mrs. Sarah 
Brown, widow of Mr. Benj. Brown, of Owston, Leicestershire, and daughter of 
Newton Smith alluded to above, and sister of Isaac Newton Smith, had a fine 
origmal picture of Sir Isaac Newton» by Kneller, which she sold to the Duke 
of Kuthuid about the year 1786. A pedigree of the Newton fiunily is given in 
Tomer's ' History of Gmutham.* Jubtik Simpsok. 


Fbost. — ^William Frost emigrated to New England prior to 1655, in which 
year he remoyed from Boston and united in the settlement of Cromwell Bay, on 
Long Island. In 1667 he removed to Matinecoek, in Oyster Bay, L. I., where 
he £ed about 1698 or 1699, leaving two sons, William and Wright Frost. By 
his will, made March 28, 1698, he duects that in the event of the death of botn 
these sons without issue, his estate shall " return to any of the Frosts that de^ 
Bcended from George Frost, bom in Bensteed, two miles from Famham, in 
Hampshire, in Old England — to the first heirs or heiresses so descending;." Any 
information from parish registers or other sources which throw light on the genea- 
logy of Greorge Frost, presumed to be the father of William above named, would be 
very acceptaole. I. J. L. 

Smith. — ^Bichard Smith, of the parish of Bramham, West Biding of Yorkshire 
baptized 10th May, 1598, buried 19th November, 1647, had an only son, Bichard 
baptized 15 October, 1626, married to Ann Yeates, by Paul Beale, Alderman of 
York, 25 February, 1658, died at Bramham 1688. A MS. of his grandson says of 
the second B. S., '* he was educated for the Gowne, but y® troubles in England at 
that time prevented his Proceeding;." He became one of the Proprietors of West 
New Jersey, in America, whither his sons went, and where his descendants con- 
tinued for a long time to fill important public offices, — one of them (Kichard 
Smith) representing the province in the Continental Congress in 1776. Could the 

Sedigree of B. S., No. 1, be traced ? A seal used by his great-great-grandson 
amuel Smith, author of a valuable History of the Colony of New Jersey, pub- 
lished in 1765, bears these arms, — ^Argent a lion rampant gules, crowned, sceptred

derived from the O. G-. eat (^)=bellum, militia, pnelium (O. Sax. ^uth^ Franc.

less O. G-. forms x)f the same name ; although Catto maj also be from Catto, co. 
York. Chaddock, Chattock, and Haddock, may be diminutives of Chad [Conf. 
the Italian diminutives in uecio^ ueeia ; as caauecia]. The names Chadbom, Chat- 
bom, and Chat Moss do not appear to be connected with the other mentioned 
names. The two former are doubtless derived from a river name, Chad, Chat, or 
Ket, t. q. Gade, a river, co. Herts ; GK)te, a river of Sweden ; from a Su-Gk>thic 
word. The name Catomore may not always be from Catumerus=bello dams. 
Catmore and Catmur may be from Catmere in Berks. As a rule, heraldry is of 
little value in deciphering proper names. The arms of the Celtic name Liverpool 
are " argent a liver (bird) azure "; on the town-seal of Hartlepool a stag is repre- 
sented in a pool ; whilst a Bobins family (whose name is clearly derived from 
Bobert) has for crest " Three Bobins." B. S. Chabitock.

P.S. Since writing the above, I have been in communication with Mr. Chattock, 
of Castle Bromwich, who thinks the name Cerdic contains all the elements of the 
name Chadock ; thus — Gerdio, Cherdic, Chardoe^ Chadoe^ Chattock, But whence 
the name Oerdic 7 I can suggest no other etymology than from htrAeoeht^ which 
will translate both "war leaSer'* and " renowned leader." Conf. the German 



The following extracts from the registers of Oswestry and Nannerch relate to 
the family of Sip Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart. William Williams, Esq., with 
whom the Oswestry extracts begin in the year 1700, succeeded his father, the 
Eight Honourable Sir Wm. Williams, Bart., in his title and large estates. The 
latter had been Speaker of the House of Commons in 1679-80. Edward, the 
eldest son of William Williams, Esq., as will be seen, died a child. Watkin, the 
Becond son, succeeded — under the will of his kinsman. Sir John Wynn, Bart. — 
to the extensive estates of Wynnstay, and assumed the additional surname of 
Wynn. Upon the death of his father, Sir William Williams, Bart., he became 
the first Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart. Robert, the second son of Sir Wil- 
liam, married Merrvel Williames, represented in Parliament the county of Mont- 
gomery, and died without issue. Richard, another son, whose name appears in the 
Oswestry Register, was M.P. for the Flintshire Boroughs, and died in 1759. His 
name, and those of his wives and some of his children, will be found in the Nan- 
nerch Register and in the inscriptions upon coffin-plates in the vaults at Nannerch.

Ellis Family. — ^I am preparing a second Supplement to my * Notices of the 
EUises/ and should be obliged oy the following information : — 

Ancestry and descendants of Sir John Ellys, sometime owner of the manor of 
TotehiU, co. Cambridge. 

Parentage of the Ber. John Ellis, B.D., the first known ancestor of Baron 
Mendip, afterwards Viscount Clifden. He is described in his memorial in Wad- 
desdon Chtirch, co. Bucks, as " Eboracensis." He was Eector there, 1661, and 
was Fellow of Catharine Hall, Cambridge. He died 1681, st. 75, and married 
Susannah "Welbore. 

Ances^ and descendants of Sir William Ellis, appointed, 1731, Ensign in 
Brigadier ^lyrrers Begiment. 

Ancestry and descendants of the following : — ^Thomas Ellis, Esq., ob. 1735, 
ffit. 92, Qroom of the Chamber to James 11. Hugh Ellis, Esq., ob. 1749, rot. 98, 
formerly Secretary to the Duke of Idhkrlborough. Bichard Ellis, Usher of the 
Court of "Wards and Liveries, 1617. Bight Honourable Sir Henry Ellis, K.C.B., 
formerly Ambassador to the Court of Persia, ob. 1855. Descendants of Bey. 
Thomas Ellis, Minor Canon of Ely, who died 1764, and of his relative, Bev. Seth 
Ellis, Licumbent of Brampton, co. Derby. 

And I should be glad to know by what matches the following coats were 
broue^ht in and quartered, viz. Quarterly of four, 1, a chevron between three 
cinqfoils (? Woodhouse of Sufiblk) ; 2 and 3, three lions passant ; 4, on a cross 
sable five crescents (Ellis), on an escutcheon of pretence, a lion passant. 
Crest, a lion passant. Motto, Nemo me impune lacessit. They occur on a seal 
formerly in the possession of Thomas ElUs, who died 1802. He was descended of 
the Ellises of Orford,in Suffolk, who bore a lion passant. This family is supposed 
to be an offset of Ellis of Chesterfield, a branch of those of Eiddftll, who bore 
or on a cross sable fios crescents argent. The lion passant was granted 1587, to 
ElUs of Alrey> co. Flint, and was probably erroneously assumed by Ellis of Orford.

Hekby Weight. — Who was Henry Wright ? Ho was created, in 1660, a 
Baronet, as Sir Henry Wright, of Dagenham, Essex. Was he connected with the 
Wrights of Kelvedon, Essex, or the Wrights of Kilverstone, Norfolk ? What 
arms did he bear? He marriod Ajine, daughter of John, first Lord Crewe of 
Stene, Was there any issue of that marriage ? It is probable that he did not 
long survive his marriage, as his widow married Edmund rye (ancestor of the Pye*8 
of Farringdon), and had several children by her second husband. Any information 
respecting this Sir Henry Wright will greatly oblige C W. H.

Tdee (p. 35). — In the number of your Journal for June, 1870, " C. G." a^ks, 
who now represents the family of Sir Samuel Tuke ? In the Heralds' College 
there is a peaigree, sworn to bv Sir John Evelyn, on the 8th of April, 1742, showing 
that at that*&te only one of Sir Samuel's descendants was living, namely, bis 
second daughter, Theresa, the widow of Charles Trender, Esq., of Bourton-on-the- 
Waters, co. Gloucester (who died 1718), she being then resident at Ligny, in the 
Duchy of Bar. Sir Samuel ob. January 28, 1670^1, his will being proved in Lon- 
don, by Mar^, his relict, in 1674. He mentions, but does not name his children, 
and leaves his wife sole executrix. She died at Lisbon, 1705. 

The above-mentioned pedigree gives three children, — Charles, at whose death, 
at the battle of the Boyne, the title became extinct ; Mary, the eldest daughter, 
who died unmarried, 1740, and was buried at Cambray ; and the above-named 

This pedigree traces the family from Sir Brian Tuke, through Thomas Tuke, of 
Layer Mamev (stated in Harl. M S. 1541 pedigree to be of Aldersgate Street, and 
having a son Thomas, bom 1612), who by his second wife, Judith, daughter of Edward 
North, of Walkeringham, co. Notts, had Samuel, the first Baronet, who is said to 
have had a son Samuel, the second Baronet. This agrees with Courthorpe ; but 
Samuel Tuke was only knighted March 3rd, 1G63, and created baronet March 31, 
1664, and in the will above referred to he is styled *' knight and baronet." Fur- 
ther, in 1664, Evelyn, who only appears to refer to one Sir Samuel Tuke, mentions 
his marriage ; in 1666, the death of his wife ; and again, in 1668, his [second] 
marriage. Qiiere, Does not this show that Courthorpe and this pedigree are incor- 
rect m making ttao baronets of this name P W. M. Tuke.

Proued in the Archdeanery Court; of Barustyle on the 29"' day of November 

Bavenbcbopt (p. 79). — The endoaed extract from a Chester paper of July, 
1849, will give " Querans " the information he seeks : — 

" Middlewich. — An Old English Signet Eing. — Greek and Soman Bings. — 
Some labourers, while removing a hedge at Bavenecroft, near Middlewich, in the 
spring of 1842, found an antique signet ring of fine gold (technically of 24 carats 
fineness, the modem quality being IS carata), on the face of which was engraven 
an heraldic shield, bearing arms which are or were borne by the two fanulies of 
Bavenscrofb and Taudrey. The ring, which weighs 14 dwt. 10 grains, is now in 
the possession of Mr. James Beardoe, of this town, and an impression of it having 
been forwarded to Dr. Ormerod, the able historian of Cheshire, be writes as follows 
respecting it : — ' I thank you for the impression of the ring. The arms, ' Argent 
a chevron sable between three ravens' beads erased of the second,' are indisputably 
those of Savenscroft of Bavenscrofb, whose heiress, Margery, brought that estate 
to Boger de Croxton in the time of Edward III. K the seal had been of the 
period of a Bavenscroft of Bavenscroft, I conjecture that it would have been cir- 
cmnscribed ' S. -. Worini de Bavenscroft,' or as the cose might be. From its aspect, 
I do not think that it is earlier than the beginning of Elizabeth's reign or later 
than the Bevolation. In this opinion, I think it probable that it was the seal of 
some Croxton of Bavenscroft, who fancied using the arms of his female ancestors ; 
OF it might be the seal of some collateral descendant of the old line, Bavenscroft 
of Bretton for instance, who might lose it when visiting his kinsmui. The first 
idea seems to me the most probable. Within the period that I have mentioned, 
Bavenscroft produced one well-known proprietor, Thomas Croxton, Colonel of one 
of the Cbeslure regiments raised to oppose Duke Hamilton in 1648, one of the 
members of the Court Martial which condemned the Earl of Derby in 1651, and 
the officer who closed the gates of Chester Castle against Sir George Booth in 
1659. It may have been his ring.' " 

The Bavenscroft and Croxton estates adjoin. Ciciley Croxton, a spinster, was 
the hist of the Croxton owners of Bavenscroft, and for many years, in my recol- 
lection, her ghost was said to haunt the old mansion. 

In the reign of Elizabeth, John Croxton de Bavenscroft, sent., held certain 
lands and tenements, with the appurtenances, in Kinderton, of Thomas Venables, 



lord of that manor, by seryice (inter alia) to find for the said Thomas Yenablei 
and his heirs one hangman, to hang murderers and felons within the manor when 
required. The Kinderton Court Bolls (6 Sept., 34 Eliz.) contain a presentment 
hj the jury that the said John Groxton rendered this service by hiring one Jobn 
Lingard, for the sum of five shillings, to hang Hugh Stringer, for the murder of 
Ann Cranage and her daughter Ciciley Cranage. B. Ll. Yawdbey. 

Babbob "Family (Quarterly Series, Vol. I., p. 58). — ^From a recent examina- 
tion of the parish register of North Luffenham, xtutland, I am enabled to forward 
the following extracts relative to that family ; also some additional ones respecting 
other families who were by marriage connected with them : — 

1665. Catherine "Weaver, wife of John Weaver, bur. Dec. 24. 
1656. Katherine, dau. of M'^ John Weaver, bapt. May IS. 

1658. Hester, dau. of John Weaver, bapt. Sept. . . • 

1659. Jonathan, son of John Weaver, bur. July 17. 

1666. Doctor Samuel Winter, bur. Dec. 26.^ 

1670. M' Christ. Broughton & M'* Frances Markham, mar. Aug. 11.^ 
1672. Bebecca, dau. of Bichard Markham, esq., bapt, May 9.^ 
1682. M' Henry Markham & M" Esther Weaver, mar. Nov. 7. 
1688. John son of M' Gabriel Barber, bur. in wollen only April 11. 

1687. M" Bridgett Barber, bur. in linnen Sept. 7. 

1688. John Weaver, esq., bur. in wollen only March 28.* 

1703. Elizabeth wife of M' Gabriel Barbour, bur. in wollen April 21. 

^ This individual was Bector of Cottingham, co. York, who went to Ireland, 
in 1650, as Chaplain to the Commissioners for the settlement of that country, and 
soon afterwards was constituted Provost of Trinity College, Dublin. On the 
south wall of the chancel of this church (Luffenham) is a marble table, having on 
it these arms, — Chequy sable and or, a fess argent, impaling or, on a fess ai^nt, 
two garbs of the first ; and this inscription, — " Samuel Winter, D' of Divinity, 
eminent for piety & learning, late Prouost of Trinity College near Dubline. He 
deceased the 24th of December in the yeare 1666 & m y* 63 yeare of his age. He 
married Elizabeth y* daughter of Christ. Weaver, esq., who out of her entire 
affection for him caused this to be set up in memorial oi him." 

' Mr. Christopher Broughton was of Longden, Stafford, and Mrs. B. was the 
third daughter of Bobt. Markham, the first Baronet, of Sedgebrooke, Notts. 

^ On the south wall of the chancel of this church is a marble tablet bearing 
this inscription, — " Under the stone below lyeth interred the corps of Colonell 
Henry Markham, who departed this life at E!etton in this county tne 15th day of 
January 1672 in the foure and fifty year of his age, whose widow (Hester, j* 
daughter of Christ. Weaver, esq.) out of her deare affection to his memoriall hath 
caused this monument to be erected 1673.'* On the tablet are these urma,— 
1, (azure) on a chief (or), a demi-lion rampant issuant (gules) ; 2, cheouy, over all 
a bend ; 3, on a fess two lions' heads, crowned ; 4, on a bend cottised tnree bears*? 
heads couped ; 5, a cross saltire ; 6, a chevron between three bucks* heads ; 7, a 
lion rampant ; 8 as 3. Crest, a lion of St. Mark, sejant guardant, winged (or), 
circled round the head (argent) supporting a lyre of the first, Markhiun. The 
stone in the chancel was in existence in 1862, but, owing to the recent restoration 
effected in the chancel, it was removed. It bore this mscription, — " Here lyeth 
Col. Henry Markham, who was very instru'tal in y« happy restauration of K. 
Charles y« 2^, & was one of y® 48 gentlemen of y* Privy (Chamber to y* said King 
of ever blessed memory." 

^ Mr. John Weaver was for several years representative for the Borough of 
Stamford in Parliament, and also a beneiactor to its charities. I am disposed to 
think he was the eldest son of Christopher Weaver. Jxjbtik Sihpboit.

t Mrs. Lockey*B will appears to hare more than common interest, and an abstract is therefore 
giTen, for the most part in her own words, but with the spelling modernized. The disposition of 
her daughters, and the prorision made for their maintenance and education, throws a curious light 
on the manners and customs of the period. 

In the name of Qod Amen, I Anne Lockey of Bidge, Oo. Hertford, Widow, in reasonable good 
health, " hut not knowing how soon or sudainljr it mate please the lord to call me hence." Soul to 
God; my bodj, if I die at Bidge, to be buried near my most dearly loying and beloved husband and 
four children in Ridge church ; and 40/ to be given to the poor of Bidge. If I die elsewhere, 20/ 
to be given to the poor there, and 20/ where I shall be buried. I give £10 towards procuring an 
able and conscionable minister to preach a sermon in the afternoon of the Saboth days at Ridge. 
To my dearly beloved sisters M" Wilmer, and M" Woodrof, for a remembrance of my love^to my 
sister Wilmer my furred cloak and my sute petticoat ; and to my sister Woodrof my sute of cut 
silk grogram, my petticoat with two gold and silk laces, my best ruffe and ruffes and apron. And 
also something which was mine, to my well beloved nephews M' Samuel Wilmer and M' John Yauz 
and their wives, and also to my nephew M' John Wilmer. And also to my dear friend M'* Eliza- 
beth Southcote ; and if she pleases to bring up my daughter Martha, I should think her well placed, 
but not to charge her. To each of my servants 10/ besides their wages. To my son John Lockey 
"as foUoweth, as a token of my dear loue and affection for him, and assuredly hopeing he will approue 
himselfe afWr my departure, as euer heretofore he hath, a louing and dutinill Sonne in his christian 
and fiuthfull loue and care for his Sisters, both for their educacon, and for their prdTerment to the 
uttermost of his power, takeing a f&therly care over them in all things woh ptain to their good for 
soul and body ; I saie I give him all his flkthers and my books of la we, or other' learning, saucing and 
my will is he give each of his Sisters a bible, a testament and a psalm book, and such of my divinity 
books in engOiih as are fittest for their vse ; and some of my french bookes, if any of them have 
skill therein. I giue to him my ffather his grandfather, and Yncle Stnbbs their pictures, wishing 
thay may allwaies mind him of their vertues for ymitacon of their worthy and religious courses.'* I 
give him also that piece of ground called Sextons grove, which I rook up in his name at Tittenhanger 
Court : also my wedding ring and my best furniture of my curtays and vallanoe embroidered, 
feather bed, blankets, bmater and pillows at the Temple, and one of my best pair of sheets and pil- 
loberes, and tablecloth and napkins and towels ; also the money I disbursea for his Chamber and 
for his buildings, and the £38 I discharged. To my daughter Anne Lockey my necklace of gold 
and pearl which hath her and my name in greek letters, my gold tablet enamelled, and the piece of 
4 ducats ; and for a remembrance of her good grandmother, my dear mother, her picture to mind 
her of her vertues ; also the purled silver bowl, also the nutt tipped with silver, and the gilt bowl 
which was hers, also her best arras coverlet, the long pillows wrought with Crostick, and a tablecloth 
and napkina of that linen which hath my mothers mark ; also my damask petticoat, and also half 
of my apparel : the rest of my apparel most of it to my daughter Mary, at the discretion of their 
aunts : and my confidence is that my two elder daughters wiU shew therasdves loving and mother- 
Uke to their younger sisters. I give to my daughter Mary as a remembrance of her careful and 
loving attendance on me, my pearl border and necklace of pearls and garnets, and my bracelet of 
pomander and pearis, and two 15/ pieces. I give my daughter Martha as a remembrance of her 
loving affection hi roe, my ring with rubies and a diamond, and my seed pearl buttons with the 
pearls which should be at the tops of them, also one of the best of my pearl and coral bracelets and 
two Dncata, and the half ducat. I give my daughter Elizabeth my 14 little gold buttons and the 
little jewel with the pearl which belongs to it, and the other pearl and coral bracelet, and the pistolet 
and Scotch piece. The rest of my jewels unbequeathed I give betwixt them two, and their elder 
sisters, to keep them until they come to the age of 16 years \ and if an^ of them be lost they to 
make them g<>c)d, also all my wearing Unen, and such like things, to be divided amongst them at tlie 
discretion of their aunts and my executors, and the angel gold to be divided amongst them for to 
mind them of their duty to their father and me. My will is that my daughter Ann, if her aunts 
think so fit, be put out for half a year or a year, and my daughter Mary two years, to learn what 
they are wanting in ; and £14 a year to be allowed to each of them for their education and maiii- 
tenanoe, and afterwurds to be put t6 some honest service, and £5 a year to be allowed for their better 
maintenance ; their placing to be at the discretion of my loving sisters their aunts : and for my two 
younger daughters my will is that £8 a year be allowed them till they come to the age of 12 years, 
and^en £12 a piece to put^them to school for two years, and after £14 a piece for their better 
education and maintenance, and then to be disposed to some honest service, at the discretion of their 
aunts, and of my executors if they be deceased, and then £5 a year be allowed for their better 
maiDtenance. And if any of my daughters live unmarried till they be of the age of 23 years, then 
to have 40 marks allowed yearly until they are 80 yeartf, then to have £32 each yearly for their 
maintenance till they marry or die ; with benefit of survivorship. " But if any of them, wch the 
lord for christs si^e I trust will keepe fiur from them, should not carry themselves vertuously, or 
should rafuae to bee guided in their courses or matches by their loueing Aunts," or by my executors, 
they that are found £sulty shall haye but three score pounds for their portion, the rest of their por- 
tion to be divided amongst my children which are virtuous. My son to have the land I have pur- 
chased in his name in Essex, if he will pay £510 towards lua sisters portions within two years alter 


my death, allowing them in the meantime £7 in the hundred, bat if he tefuae, the same to tlie bpH 
uae of my four daughters ; and they to hare the residue of my goods unbequeatbed. Hy funenl to 
be in a seemly manner : my daughters portions to be payable at 18 years if Gk>d directs of a good 
match for them. I appoint my son John Lookey sole executor, and I gire him my treble soreraTne, 
which was the last bequest of his grandmother to me. If he should not lire to perform my wul, I 
appoint my nephew M' John Wilmer my executor, and gire him as a remembraixioe of my lors my 
purse wrought with gold and silk, and two fine shirts and a gold ring. My brother Woo(ht>f to Iw

X As the will is short, an abstract may be given : — In the name of Gh>d, amen. I John Lodwy 
of Barking in the oounty of Essex, Esq. : sick in body : soul to God ; body to the earth. To my 
little daughter Abigail, all my messuages &c. in the town and oounty of Nottingham, to her and bor

releasing to my wife Abigail Lockey all right or interest she may have to or in my real or pmoaal 
estate, or to any legacies given her by Ann Lockey her mother. Besidue of estaite to Abigail, my 
loving wife, she to be executrix : dated March 25 1651 : siened John Lockey, in presence of Wil- 
liam Ames — John Gartrand, and Edward Keighly : proved April 3^ following, by Abigail Lockey 
the widow : registered Ch-eif 70. 

Mr. Lockey was probably buried at Barking ; the Begister was not kept r^gulaily at the time of 
his death, and there is no entry of his burial. 

§ Nothing further has been ascertained of William Lookey*s children^ nor does it seem to be 
known whether he has any descendant*. The Lookey wills recorded after 1699 would probably 
furnish valuable information, but they are not open to literary inquiry.

Belle Poule, Jan. 17, 1778 ; and on his return to the Bienfiusant^ was in the action between Keppel 
and d'OrTillierB off Uslumt. He was also present at the capture of the Caraccas convoy, the 
defeat of Don Juan de Langara, and the relief of Gibraltar by the fleet under Sir G. B. Bodney. 
In the following Au^t, he captured off Kinaale the Comte d'Artois, a large privateer of 44 guns, 
after a smart action m which the enemy had 21 men killed and 35 wounded, and the Bienfiusapt 
3 killed and 20 wounded. It was a remarkable circumstance that in the following month, the 
Bien&isant captured another privateer called the Oomtesse d'Artois. At the dose of 1780, Mr. 
Sotheron removed with his gallant Commander into the Artois frigate, which was considered to be 
the finest vessel of her class in the world. This ship formed part of the force employed to watch 
the motions of the Dutch squadron, which was then ready for sea in the Tezel ; and our young 
officer was consequently present in Aug. 1781, at the engagement off the Dogger Bank between Sir 
Hyde Parker and Adm. Zoutmann. On the 3d Dec. in the same year, the Artois captured the 
Hercules and Mars, Dutch privateers, mounting 24 nine-pounders and 10 cohoms each ; and she 
also formed part of Adm. Harrington's fleet, which intercepted a French convoy bound to the East 
Indiea, on which occasion the Pegase of 74 guns, L'Actionnaire a 2-decker armed en flute, and ten 
sail of transports, fell into the lumds of the British. During the remainder of the war Mr. Sotheron 
served in the Artois off the Irish coast. He afterwards proceeded to Newfoundland, where he was 
promoted to the rank of Lieutenant by Adm. Campbell, in 1783, and served in that capacity on 
board the DanaS and ^olus frigate during the ensuing three years. We subsequently find him in 
the Kingfisher sloop, from which vessel he removed into the Irusty 50, bearing the broad pendant 
of Commodore Cosby on the Mediterranean station. Mr. Sotheron's next appointment was about 
1792, to be first Lieutenaut of the Bomney, another 50-gun ship, carrying the flag of Bear- Adm. 
Goodall in the Mediterranean : and in the course of the same year, he obtained the command of 
the Fury of 14 guns, employed in affbrding protection to the trade between Ensland and Portugal. 
He sabsequently accompanied the expedition under his old patron Bear- Adm. M*Bride and the Earl 
of Moira, sent to assist the French royalists in Normandy and Brittany, and assisted at the capture of 
La Vipere, a national corvette mounting 18 guns. Capt. Sotheron was advanced to Post rank 
Deo. 11, 1793 ; and in the following year, we find him commanding the Monarch, a 74-gun ship 
bearing the broad pendent of Sir James Wallace, with whom he removed into his old ship the 
Bomney, on that officer being appointed Commander-in-Chief at Newfoundland. Towards the 
latter end of 1796, a French Squadron, under the orders of M. de Biohery, invested that settle- 
ment, and destroyed property to a considerable amount. The enemy's armament consisted of seven 
ittQ of the line and three frigates, on board of which were embarked 2000 troops. Sir James Wal- 
lace, however, by his judidous arrangements, aided by the braveiy and vigilance of Capt. Sotheron, 
and the other officers of his small squadron (consisting of the Bomney, 2 frigates, and 2 sloops), 
completely baffled the designs of the enemy, who, after a fruitless attempt to obtain possession 
of the colony, returned to Europe. Capt. Sotheron's next appointment was to the Latona frigate 
on the Newfoundland ^tion, where he continued during the two following years. Subsequently 
to his return to England, he was actively employed in the North Sea, and occasionally commanded 
a Ught squadron off the coast of Holland. In the autumn of 1799, the Latona formed part of the 
expedition sent against the Helder ; and aiter the surrender of that fortress, went with Vice- Adm. 
Mitchell to attack the Batavian ships of war lying at anchor in the Ylieter channel, but which sur- 
rendered without making any resistance, in consequence of the spirit of disaffection manifested by 
their crews. For his services on this occasion, Capt. Sotheron, in common with the other officers 
of the fleet, received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament. Capt. Sotheron continued in the 
North Sea during the remainder of the war, and was fortunate enough to capture several of the 
enemy's armed vessels. In the sprins of 1802 he was sent abroad with dispatches, and some time 
afi»r the renewal of hostilities obtained the command of the Excellent, 74, attached to the Mediter- 
ranean fleet under the orders of Lord Nelson, by whom he was entrusted with the defence of the 
Bay of Naples, on which service we find him at the time when the andent Neapolitan Government

Esquire by Lucy his Wife daughter of Edward Thompson of Marston in the 
County of York Esquire and Coheir of her brother Tyndall Thompson Esquire sU 
deceased hath represented unto The Most Noble Charles Duke of Norfolk Earl 
Marshal and Hereditary Marshal of England that his Ancestors have been most 
respectably settled on their own Estates at Holm in Spaldingmore and Hook in 
the West Riding of the County of York for more than two Centuries past as 
proved by the family Evidences now in his possession and that his Ancestors have 
intermarried with the heirs general of Mitchell of Hook and other ancient and 
respectable families in the said County and have long borne for Coat Armoi^r Qules 
on a bend Argent three Eagles displayed Sable and for Crest An Eagle with two 
Heads displaved Crowned but on a due search being made in the Heralds College 
he the said Frank Sotheron does not find them recorded there to his family and 
being unwilling to continue the use of them without lawful authority requested 
the favor of His G-race's Warrant for Our granting the said Arms with such varia- 
tion as may be necessary to be borne by him and his descendants and by his four 
Sisters Lucy, Elizabeth and Mary Catherine Sotheron, Spinsters and Henrietta 
Wife of the Reverend William Dealtry of Wigginton in the County of York, 
Clerk, and their descendants according to the Laws of Arms : And forasmuch as 
the said Earl Marshal did by Warrant under his hand and seal bearing date the 
twenty fourth day of May instant authorize and direct Us to gra nt and exemplify 
such Armorial Ensigns accordingly : Knowye therefore that We the said Garter 
and Norroy in pursuance of His Grace's Warrant and by virtue of the Letters 
Patent of Our several Offices to each of Us respectively granted do by these Pre- 
sents grant exemplify and confirm unto the said Frank Sotheron the Arms fol- 

was displaced by the French army, and the throne of that kingdom usurped by Joseph Buonaparte. 
In this state of aflfairs the very prudent arrangements made by Capt. Sotheron prevented the mis- 
chief that would otherwise liave ensued. On the Ist of August, 1811, Capt. Sotheron was pro- 
moted to the rank of Rear-Admiral. On the vacancy occasioned in the representation of Netting* 
hamshire by the resignation of Lord William Bentinck in 1814, Bear-Adm. Sotheron was unani- 
mously elected M.P. for that county in conjunction with Capt. Lord Newark, now" (1839) "Earl 
Manvers, and thus was presented the novel spectacle of a county represented in the senate by two 
naval officers. In 1816 (? 1806), '* on the demise of his eldest brother Col. Sotheron, who served 
for the borough of Pontefract in several Parliaments, Bear-Adm. Sotheron, as heir-at-law, suc- 
ceeded to the family estates in the counties of York and Nottingham. He was advanced to the 
rank of Vice- Admiral in 1819, and to that of full Admiral in 1830. He continued to represent * 
Nottinghamshire until the dissolution in 1831, when, in consequence of his opposition to the Beform 
Bill, he was successfully opposed by John Bvelyn Denison, esq." (now the Bight Hon. Viscount 
Ossington of Ossinffton and formerly Speaker of the House of Commons), '* one of the present" 
(1839) ** members for the Southern Division of that county. Adm. Sotheron was twice married. 
His first wife died on the 29th May, 1812 ; and he married secondly, Nov. 13, 1813, the eldest 
daughter of Wilson Braddyll, of Conishead Priory, co. Lancaster, esq. His heir is Lucy Sarah

Tha only known qiurteringa in the Above shield are lit Mid 6th, A«hburner, argent ■ fms 
between three cre»ceDtaj;ulea (the Indinn branch canning threflinul!et« or, <>□ the fease, rordiflerenw) ;

diTiaioD, in the oil-painting mentioned below) between three mullets of the aeoond ) 6tfa, Hargro'e 
of HargroTe (vel HargraTe), Cheahire, argent a griffin aegreant per fesse gules and aable, beak and 
clawa or. Aa to what familiea the Srd aod itH quarteringa belonged I am unable to aaj. Tb(j 
were, howerer, brought in by the Moulaona, and I think one of them will be for itoaangisTB (pro- 
babl; the 3rd), the 4th being like some of the eart; Flantagenet coale, and intended, no doubt, for 
Orba. Aooording lo the letter of the French Commodore Moulaon, &nm Dunkerqus, 17SS, Ic hii 
oousin, Hn. Mary Aahbumer {nie Moulaon), the Moulaona in early times marriMl the colitin uf 
BoasngraTe, Orba, and HargraTe, whioh ii corroborated, ai far as I can see, by a well-oiecul«d olJ 
oil-painting of the quartorings, creat, and motto, of about the reign of Queen Anne, formerly ill Ili« 
posaesaion of the late Mr, George Aahbumer of Kensington, and from which I oopied these Monlwn 
quartering! many years ainoe. Ormerod'a ' Cheahire ' deaoribea the aame quarteriuf[B a* eiiitin; on 
the old tomb of a Moulaon of Wheelocke, near Sandbach, and on referring lo Burke'a ' Oenenl 
Armoury,' 1 find the 2nd and 6th quarters to be the ooata of the familiea I haTe mentioned. The 
direct ancestor of the Moulaona waa Lord Mayor of London in liiSl ; but although Coniinodon 
Moulaon refera in hia letter to a pedigree in the College of Anna, I hare been unable, afl«r a tclanbli 
long aoarch, aaaiated Tery kindly by the late York Herald, Tlio. Wm. King, Esq., F.S.A., to dii«"« 
either t)ie Mayor's naone or the alighl«st mention of the numea of Moulaon, RosengraTe, Orbs, or 
HargraTe, — all anciently well-known Cheshire families, excepting Orbs, of which I kiiow nothing. 
A (ery old roll of tlie Aahbumers waa in existence aome yean ainoe. and although going back !•> 
the day* of the Plantageneta. I do not remember among its emblazonry any other quaiterinp tor 

The griffin creat is for Mcmlson, no doubt taken from the Hargrvare ooaC, and the Moulaon 
piotlo is that engraied at the foot of these quarteringa.— T. H.

Baronet. Both Mr. Harris and his father appear, from family papers, to have lived 
at St. Daye, in Gwennap, and there is therefore good reason for assuming them 
to have derived from the Bichard, son of John Harrys of St. Issye, mentioned in 
the preceding will. 

Hals in his * History of Cornwall ' mentions Bichard Harris, Gent., of Trevance, 
in the parish of St. Issye, who married Vivyan of Tollskiddy, his father, Movie. 

There is at Tregullow a deed of release " between Elizabeth Harris Widow on 
the one side, and Edward Harris of Gunwalloe Gent. John Harris. Catherine Head 
wife of Isaac Head Esq^ controller of H.M. Customs in the Islands of Scilly, and 
Susanna Williams, wife of Michael Williams of Gwennap. Gen*, children of Henrv 
Harris of Ghwennap. Gent, recently deceased, who died intestate, on the other 
side," which corroborates these latter entries. The armorial bearings on the seals 
attached to this document are identical with those of Harris of Kadford. It is 
dated 1768. M. W. 


Amebicast G-EiTEAXOGY. — In the British Museum there is a work called " Me- 
morials of the Descendants of William Shattuck, the Progenitor of the Families in 
America that have borne his name. By Lemuel Shattuck, Member of the Mass. 
Historical Society, and of the American Antiquarian Society, etc. etc. Boston : 
Printed by Button and Wentworth for the Family, 1855.-' 

On pages 57 and 58, it states that "he was bom in old England in 1621, and 
died at V^terton, Mass., 1672,*' and that " his exact origin and early history are 
involved in obscurity. The first lot of land granted to him is described upon the 
records as follows, 1640 : ' William Chattuck, an Homstall,* *' etc. etc. 

The work is written to ascertain the English origin of the family, and contains 
a perfect pedigree of the descendants of this William Chattuck down to 1855. If 
the " legal personal representative " will write me as below, he " may hear of 
something to his advantage," and that, too, not merely in a genealogical point of view.

Fbeeb Pedigree. — A short pedigree of this family appeared some time ago in 
* Miscellanea G-enealogica.' In it, Helen Blair, wife of the Eev. Gko. Freer (c. 
1 660-1720), is stated to have been " of a good family in Perthshire." She was 
a daughter of James Blair of Ardblair, and died 11th December, 1751 (see * Fasti 
EcclesisB ScoticansB,' part iv. p. 805). There is a tolerably good account of the 
Ulairs of Ardblair in * Douglas's Baronage.' Who is the present representative?

Deall: Abthue. — Samuel Deall was bom at Staines, Middlesex County, in 
1713. He had a brother William, who died at Staines, in March or April, 1775. 
Samuel came to New York prior to 1758, in which yei^r he married, in New York, 
Elizabeth Arthur, daughter of [Francis] Arthur, of Bisley, Gloucestershire, Eng. 

Any information respecting the origin and pedigree of these two families, or 

either of them, is solicited by Johk J. Lattiko.

Hekht Wmght (p. 188). ^-Pedigrees of the Wrights of Essex may be found 
in the Harl. MSS. 1083, fol. 63 ; 1432, fol. 131 b ; 1541. fol. 3 and 56 ; 1542, fol. 
86. But nothing occurs in either of them about Henry Wright. 

Lawrence Wright, M.D., who possessed Henham Hall, was the father of Sir 
Henry Wright of the same place. The Doctor died .October 3, 1657, and, with 
Mary, his wife, lies buried in the church of South Weald, co. Essex. His son and 
heir Henry was created a baronet June 11, 1660, and died February 5th, 1663, 
aged 27 years. He married Anne, daughter of Lord John Crew of Stene (which 
lady diea September 27, 1708), by whom he had Sir Henry, who died (in 1681) 
at the age of nineteen, unmarried ; and Anne, who, upon her brother's death, 
became a great heiress. She married first to Edmond, son of Sir Eobert Pye, of 
Farringdon, in Berkshire, and afterwards to William Bider, Es<j. Sir Henry, the 
first baronet, was buried with his father. Blomefield has given an elaborate 
pedigree (vol. i. p. 545) of the Wrights of Kilverstone, co. Norfolk, but no men- 
tion is msbde of this Sir Henry Wright, whose ancestors were of Kelvedan Hatch, 
CO. Essex (see Morant's *Hist. of Essex,' vol. i. p. 62; vol. ii. p. 668: Wright's 
*Hi8t. of Essex,' vol. i., under Dagenham). The arms borne by this family are 
given in the sixth edition of Guillim's * Heraldry,' p. 262, — ** A zure two bars 
argent, in chief three leopards' heads Or." These arms were borne by Sir Henry 
Wright of Dagenham, and also by Sir Benjamin Wright of " Cranham Hall." 
1 think it should be Henham Hall, in the same county of Essex. " Argent two 
bars azure, on a chief of the second three leopards' faces of the field, was borne by 
the name of Wright." It was allowed and confirmed by William Flower, Nor- 
roy, December 18, 1683, and in the 26 of Eliz. to Eiehard Wright, Serjeant-at- 
Arms, the son of John Wright of Bickley, in the County Palatine of Chester. 
Guillim refers to a MS. of grants in Ashmolean Lib., No. 844. A pedigree of 
this branch of the family is given in Ormerod's ' History of Cheshire,' vol. ii. p. 
389. W. WnrrEBS.

* This ehrifltian name is erroneously entered as "James," instead of "William." See next note. 

t The bnptism of James Tasewell is thus entered in the parish register of Buckland Newton : — 
' Julii 1688. Yioesimo quinto die mensis pnedioti baptiiatus fuit Jacobus Tanswell (sie) Alius 
WUTmi Tanswell de Buckland." His first wife Mary, daughter of — Hunt of Fonton, Ohar- 
minter. Go : Dorset, died in 1659, and was buried at Haselbury Bryan, Co : Dorset, in the registers 
of whioh parish is the following entry :—*< Burials, A.i>. 1659. Maria uxor Jacobi Taswell Gen. 
obiit 19 Jan«." In the " Autobiography of William Taswell, D.D.," (his grandson), published 
by the Gamden Society in 1852, it ub stated (p. 8) :— 

** In the same year, 1662, my grandfather James Taswell of Dorsetshire o^me to Town, aged 
74^ bom in the year 1588. Staying a little time with us only, he soon returned into the country, 
and took his own serrant to wife : he begat a son the same year of her. He departed this life 
1663. On the day he was celebrating his wife's birthday, he drank too much wine^ which threw 
him into a ferer." 

By his will (proyed in the Gonrt of the Archdeacon of Dorset in 1663), in which he is described 
as ** James Taswell of Haselbury Bryan," he giyes " to my sonne James Taswell one shilling ;" " to 
my daughter Mar^ Young one shilling ; " "to my kinsman Ralphe Taswell one sute of aparrell ; " 
" to my kinsman Richard Taswell one sute of aparrell ; " " all the rest of m^ goods moyeable and 
unmoyeable I giye and bequeath unto my wife Aner whom I do make executnx of this my last will." 

It appears, by Hutohins' History of Dorset, that the Hunt family held the Manor of Forston. 
On the death, in 1688, of Anne, daughter and heiress of Henry Hunt, Esq., of Forston, the 
estate descended to her issue by her second husband, George Browne, Esq., a younger son of the 
Brownes of Frampton. 

X James Tazewell of London Merchant, and of Limington Manor, Somerset, married (1) 
86 March 1649, Bliaabeth daughter of -• Upsal of Go : Dorset, (bom 1624— died 1667), and (2) 
in 1673, Elizabeth daughter of John Eingsmill of Andorer, Esq. (She died July, 1702, s.p.) He 
died 26 Maroh, 1683. 

In his son's autobiography (p. 25) we read : — 

" Not long after the barbarous murther of Gharles the First, James Taswell married Elizabeth 
Upsal, a person accomplished as to her person, sensible, and of a yery good extraction. He was a 
considerable merchant in the Isle of Wight, and connected himself to her Maroh 26, 1649." 

Id. p. 7. " About the end of Maroh 1655, James Taswell Esq., rotiring from the Isle of Wight 
with his wi£B and three childron settled at a sea-port Town, Brithamston, Sussex, whero his mother- 
in-law, my grandmother, liyed." .... "In June 1656, we took a joum'ey to London. After 
reaidiiig in an house for the space of a year, in which time all of us wero seized with the small-pox 
(1667), about the middle of summer we took a yery grand house in Bear Lane near the Gustom- 

Id. p. 16. " 1673, my father married Elizabeth Kingsmill, sister of one of the same name, 
with a fortune of £600, at Andoyer." 

In 1663, James Tazewell, who was seised of the Manor of South Brent, Somerset, and of other 
lands in that county, and in the acUoining county of Deyon, purohased the Manor and Adyowson 
of Limington, Co : Somerset. He rebuilt the Manor House at Limington in 1672. The house was 
again rebuilt about thirty years since, and only a wing of the old building erected in 1672 is 
now standing. A stone wiUi the name of " James Tazewell," arms, and date 1672, which formerly 
appeared on the front of the old Manor House, is now in the possession of Mr. T. P. Tuwell- 

I Besides the children enumerated in the pedigree, James Tazewell had : — Maria, bom 29 Deo. 
1649, died aged 8 months ; Elizabeth, bom 7 July 1653, and died soon after ; Ann, bom Nor., 
1669, died soon after i and Maria, bom Feb. 1667, died soon after. 

Of the children mentioned in the pedigree, James the eldest son and heir, bom 20 Feb. 1660, 
•Qooeeded his father in the Manor of Limington. He married Ann daughter of — EingsmiU, Esa. 
and had three sons and three daughters, llie eldest son James, died s.p. The second, John Taswell 
of Oh : Ch : Oxford, M.A., was yicar of Chewton, Somerset, (a liying in the patronage of the EingsmiU 
bmily), and died without male issue. The third, William Tazewell, bap : 17 July 1690, emigrated 
to Tirsinia, America, in 1715, where he married in 1721, Sophia, daughter of Henry Hermanson by 
his wife Gkrirude daughter of Gol^ Southey Littleton. He died in 1752, leayine issue, now repre- 
sented by John Kiyison Tazewe:!, Esq., of Norfolk, Virginia, n.S.A., son of the late Littleton 
Waller ^Aoewell, Gk>yeraor of Yirginia.

American Qenealogt. — Many readers will be interested in hearing that mr 
former query under this heading has been instrumental in supplying a link 
missing for some two centuries and a half, and may probably lead to the discoverj 
of another of a much earlier date. I should now be very pleased to hear of or 
from any one in America of the name of Chad, Chads, or Shad. The latter has 
appeared in lists of American surnames, and I believe is synonymous with Chad ; 
and if so, it is a very curious coincidence that C should nave interchanged with 
S in America, both in Chattuck and Chad, as in the Philologieal Society Papen 
for 1865, p. 47, it is stated that " in the new i^erican Dictionary projected bj 
Franklin in 1768, the soft sound of c is supplied by «." One of this family I know 
died in America about the year 1789.

Compiled from old family documents, etc., in poseessipn of Edward Orpen Palmer^ 
Killotoen, Kenmare, Co. Kerry, Esquire, the present Head of the Family, by 
his son, the Bev. A. Henry Herbert Palmer, of Monkstown, Co, Dublin. 

* Heb. stromas palmer. 

Concerning the Rev* Thomas Palmer, founder of the Palmer family of Eenmare, 
Co. Kerry, the following are the chief particulars recorded or known.* He was 
(it is stated) for some time in early youth in some way connected with or attached 
to Anne Hyde, wife of James II. At a subsequent period, the date of which is not 
exactly ascertained, be was admitted to Holy Orders, and for some reasons, only 
matter of conjecture, came over to Ireland and cast in his lot with the English 
settlers in that country. His name appears in the Visitation Bookf of Diocese of 
Cloyne Oct. 21^ 1669, as Vicar of Clonfert and TuUilease and Rector of Knock- 
temple. In 1670, as appears from a document in Rolls OfBce Court of Chancery, 
Dublin, he was appointed through royal farour to the Crown livings of Kilmare 
(now Kenmare), Kilgarvan, Templenoe, Kilcro^an, and Cahirciveen (Diocese of 
Ardfert and Aghadoe). He was appointed to the commission of the peace for the 
County Kerry on 16*^ May 1679. ile was also Judge of the Admiralty Court of 
Munster, and of the Connistorial Court of Ardfert and Aghadoe. The most pro* 
minent event of his life was the defence of the Port of Killowen, commonly called 
the "White House, J" by the Protestant colony of Kenmare under his command, 
united with Richaj^ (5rpen, Esq., agent to Sir William Petty, against some 
thousands of the Irish forces of James II. Harassed by repeated raids of the 
native Irish on their cattle, farms, and homesteads, the whole Protestant population 
of the district, in fear of their lives and unable to procure any help, resolved to 
brin^ their families to a common place of safety, and as8ociated§ themselves as a 
garrison of the fort with its outworks under the leadership of their Rector and ^ 
his son-in-law Mr. Orpen. They expected an English army to land immediately 
in Munster for the rescue of the various colonies of Protestants scattered through- 
out the province, but the desired relief never came ; and abandoned to their &te 
in a remote comer of the island, after a brief but stout resistance, during a siege 

* There is some donbt as to his parentage, which is strange in the case of a man, as he was, of 
some note, and only to be explained by t^e almost total severance from kindred which emigration 
to Ireland in ttiose times involved. It has been asserted that he is identical with the person named 
in the following extract from the Admission Book of Christ's Chnrch College, Cambridge. " A.D. 
1658, Julii 10*^ lliomas Palmer Johannis Leicestriensis filius, natus apud Harborough, ibidcmque 
edncatos sub ferulft Mag*^ Berry, annos natus 14. Admissos est sizator sub Mag** Burnet, 
spondente Mag** Pepper. And who took his B.A. degree in 1662, and his M.A. in 1668. If so 
he comes of a very old family mentioned in a.d. 1447. Vid. Burton's History of lioiceetershire, 
published 1623, pp. 64, 94, 95, 127. 

But the belief has always obtained that he was the eldest son of a distin^shed family in 
NorUiamptonshire, said to have died young, but did not. He came to Ireland owmg, it is supposed, 
to some domestic difference, and chose to live and die forgotten in another land. 

Any information or useful suggestion touching this matter will be gladly received. H. Herbert 
Palmer, Clk. Monkstown, Co. Dub. 

t Vid. Dr. Brady's "Records of Cork," vol. ii. page 129. The enUy in V. B. is as follows : 
"1669, Oct 27*^ Thomas Palmer, Y. Clonfert & Tnllilease, & R. luiocktemple, per mortem 
Boberti Booth." His successor in these livings was Richard Davies, July 21'*, 1671. 

X Its ivy-clad ruins overhanging the bankn of the beautiful river Roughty are still standing 
on the lands of Killowen in possession of E. Orpen Palmer Esq., the present head of the family. 

§ The following is a verbatim copy of the oaUi. " Association. We the underidgned do hereby 
in defence of our lives and religion associate ourselves in a body within the Fort of Killowen 
against the enemies of the Protestant Church and will from time to time to the utmost of our 
power behave ourselves according to all such directions as shall bo given us by Thomas Palmer 
and Richard Orpen for our management and safety until we are received into command of His 
Highness the Prince of Orange. In testimony whereof we have taken our oaths upon the Holy 
Evangelists and put our hands and seals this last day of January 168f ." 


which has attracted much notice,* they capitulated on honourable terms. These 
terms were however shamefully brokenf by the enemy, and the brave but unhappy 
garrison, plundered, deceived, and crowded (only eight families of skilled iron- 
workers being held back by the Irish) into two small vessels, only succeeded at last 
in making their way to Bristol on March 26th, after much hardship and in sony 
plight Mr. Palmer, it would seem, after a short stay in Endand, came back to his 
old home and work at Kilmare with his little band of settlers, and s{>ent the 
remaining ten^ years of his life and ministry among them.§ It was during this 
period, if not before, (Sir B. Burke and Dr. Brady erroneously, it is thought, say 
1652) that he obtained several grants of land in estate, also some on lease renew- 
able for ever, embracing the present town of Kenmare and surrounding district, 
which in 1770, through legal ignorance on the part of the then possessor, became 
the property of the Earl of Shelburne. ||

Bichaid Orpen, and entitled '* An exact Relation of the Penecutions, Bobberies, and Losses sos^

X Rev. T. Palmer must have been dead in 1702, for his son in that year leased ground at 
Kenmare to Gbvemment for site of barracks. All the early parish Records of Kenmare were 
Unhappily destroyed in a fire at the Rectory in early part of present century. 

§ Much interesting information is contained in another rare pamphlet, also by Richard Orpen, 
in Library of Trinity College, Dublin, (marked, <* Pamphlets" P. pp. 8.) entitled "The London 
Master or the Jew detected." It nves an account of the fraudulent and wilful shipwreck of a ship 
called the ^* Laurel " in the River Kenmare, — and contains a solemn statement by Rev^ Thomas 
Palmer " in verbo saoerdotis " — ^giving his opinion on the matter — relating also a grievous calamity 
whidi the shelter and lodging ne gave to the shipwrecked sailors with their goods brought on 
himself viz. the burning and robbing of his own house at the ** Sound,*' Kenmare, at midnight, 
January 29*" 1693 by the " Tories.*; 

His life was saved on that occasion by the influence which his wife Julia, a native Chieftain's 
daughter, nossessed with the Irish Robbers, but documents of the greatest value and interest were 
burned and lost.

Communicated hy W. W, H, Wynne^ Esq. of Peniarth. 

In drawing up the following Pedigree, the compilei; lias not entered into the 
earlier descent or the G^raldine race from Other, a posseBsor of many Lordflhips 
in Sun*ey, Backinghamshire, Berkshire, Middlesex, and Wilts, in the time of 
Edward the Confessor, nor the question of his alleged descent from the Gherardeni, 
ancient Lords of Tuscany. They are to be found in many of the peerages, 
and, in particular, in that valuable account of his own family by the present 
Marquis of Kildare. 

Such as this Pedigree is, it has been compiled with much care ; as to that part 
of it prior to the settlement in Wales of a branch of the G-eraldines, from the 
best historical evidences which the compiler could obtain, and after the settlement 
of that branch in Wales, from a Tax Eoll of the county of Merioneth of 1293-4 
in the Public Becord Officio,. Ministers' Accounts of the Crown during a long series 
of years, in the same Bepository, the family deeds, and parochial Begisters, and 
all these confirming the original Heraldic Visitation by Lewis Dwnn, in the 
Hengwrt collection, and many other pedigrees in the same collection and elsewhere. 

'^ It has been said that the three most noble names in Europe are : the De 
Yere's of England, the FitzQerald*s of Ireland, and the Montmorency's of 
Prance." (See Quarterly Review for April, 1860, p. 335.) Of these families, 
the first is extinct, the second yet occupies its former high position, as we believe 
does the third, in France. 

It is well known to those conversant in Welsh histoiy and genealogy, that 
a branch of the noble sept of the Oeraldines, or FitzOeralds, — Osbom, sur- 
named " Wyddel " (the Irishman),— settled in Merionethshire in the thirteenth 
century, and was founder of some of the most distinguished families in that 
county. Of these, the powerful houses of Yaughan of Corsygedol, and Wynne of 
Ynysymaengwyn and Mlaesyneuadd, are extinct ; the Wynnes of Peniarth continue 
to flourish.^ 

Some of the members of the Gheraldine line settled in Wales have been dis- 
tinguished for their literary attainments. Of these, Cadwalader Wynne, rector of 
Llanenddwyn, who died in 1684, translated from Latin into English, a work very 
scarce in its English form, entitled An Antidote against Sorrow^ published in 1650. 
A more eminent literary member of this house was the well-known " Bardd Cwsg," 
the Bev. Ellis Wynne, rector of Llanvair-juxta-Harlech, who died in 1734 ; and 
since his time lived his relation, William Wynne, rector of Llangynhaval, a dis- 
tinguished Welsh poet of the eighteenth century. Amongst the warriors of the 
house may be mentioned the celebrated David ap levan ap Einion, Constable of 
Harlech Castle during the Wars of the Boses, wno is so honourably referred to in 
the Life of Lord Herbert of Cherhury, (See Life of Lord Herbert^ pp. 7, 8, 
Strawberry Hill edition ; and Pennant's Tour^ vol. ii. p. 181, edition 1784, 4to ; 
also Hi9t. of the Owedir Family, 8vo edition, p. 76.) 

It may be added that it is probable that Osbom Wyddel was much concerned 
in the building of the very mteresting and beautiful church of Llanaber near 

W. W. E. Wtwne. 

VOL. I. U 






Showing how Osbom, styled by the Welsh heralds, " Wyddel " (the Irishman), 
was conneciked with the GhBraldines of Desmond, if the oelief of the late Sir 
William Betham, Ulster-King-at-Arms, after a search among his YolaminouB 
Oeraldine papers, was correct, that Osbom was a son of John EitE Thomas Pits 
Maurice Fitz Gerald de Windsor, the first Lord of Decies and Desmond. It is, 
indeed, improbable that he was a son of any other G^eraldine of Desmond. He 
could not have been son of an earlier one, and it is very unlikely that he waB 
of a later. 

"Ye GeraldineB! ye Genddinei! how royally ye reigned 
0*er Dennond broad and rich Eildare, and English arts disdained ; 
Your Bword made knighte, your banner waved, free was your bugle call. 
By Qlyn's green slopes and Dingle's tide, from Barrow's banks to Youghal. 
What gorgeous shrines, what Brehon lore, what minstrel feasts there were 
In and around MaynoothV strong keep and palace-filled Adare ! 
But not for rite or feast ye stayed when friend or kin were pressed j 
And foemen fled when * Crom a boo" ' bespoke your lance in rest."

^ It may be added, that the Bey*'. John Wynne, who has recently resigned the vicarage of 
Uandiillo, in Edemion, is lineally descended from Osbom. 

' Maynooth was one of the strongholds of the Eildare branch of the Geraldines. 

' '* Cirom a boo " was the war-cry of the Eildare, *' Shanet a boo," of the Desmond line of this sept. 

* According to Sir W". Betham, it was in 1260 ; in Smith* 9 Kerry, it is said to have been in 
1261 ; by the Calendarium Qenealogieum, published under the authority of the Master of the Bolls, 
it appears to have been upon the Vigil of S^ James the Apostle, 46 Hen. III. (24 July, 1261.) 

* Sir W. Betham did not think that he had the same strong grounds for his opinion that Osbom 
was a son of iAiefirH marriage as for believing that he was a son of John Fits Thomas ; but he 
thought it more probable that he was so. 

* The tradition is that Thomas Fits Maurice was onlv nine months old when his father and 
grandfiUiier were slain at the battle of GaUan. The child was at Tralee, and on his attendants 
rushing out, alarmed at the intelligence, he was left alone in the cradle, when a tame baboon or ape 
took him up^ in his arms, and ran with him to the top of the tower of the neighbouring Abb^. 
After carrying him round the battlement, and exhibiting him to the £nghtened spectators, he 
brought the imant back to its cradle in safely. Thomas was in consequence sumamed '* An Appagh " 
(in Irish), <* Simiactts," or *< the Ape." The EarU of KUdare, p. 21. 

7 M'. Yaughan, the eminent genealogist and antiquary of Hengwrt, in a MS. written in 1664, 
observes of Osbom, that he *' was a nobleman's son of Desmond in Ireland, of y" famous fiftmily of 
the Giraldines." The arms as they have been home by his lineal descendants, so Iods as there are 
examples of them extant, are precisely the same as those of the house of Desmond. The Crest too, is 
exactly similar to that of the sixth Earl of Desmond, with these slight exceptions : in the one, the 
boar is airgeuif in the other, ermine, in the one it is charged with a fret, in the other fretty. The 
crescent for difference, as borne by Osbom's descendant^ would imply that he was a second son, 
but it is not known how long it has been used. It is so found in a MS. written by the well-known 
Welsh herald and genealogist, Griffith Hiraethog, between the years 1666 and 1662 inclusive. It 
is stated by Ghitjrn Owen, a genealogist of the fifteenth century, one of the most eminent of our 
Welsh genealogists, that Osbom accompanied from Irdand to WiJes, Ghriffith, one of the sons of 
Ednyv^ Vydum, minister to Prince IJewelyn, GriffiUi being obliged to leave his country for a 
time, on account of some scandal regarding Llewelyn's princess and himself, having emigrated to 
Ireland. This is very probable, as Gmffith was connected by blood with the Gtoraldines.

* '*The ofspring or posteritie of these bretheren'' (the sons of Einion) ** did so multiply, y' from 
y» time they are owed Tylwyih JEnion, y* is y* progenie of Enion." — Manuscript in the autograph 
of the antiquaiT, Bobert Yaughan, written in 1664. JFyth Enaid Tylwyth Einiawn — '* eight souls

"'It woiud seem probable from a deed at Peniarth, dated 20 April 28 Hen. Vill., that levan 
i^ Bhys had another wife, by whom he had a son named Morgan, and a daughter, Katharine, 
married to WiUiam ap Miidoc Yychan, by whom she had a son named Bytherch ; for by this deed, 
Satherine conveys to her son Bytherch, certain lands in Fennyved & Llandecwin, which had 
deeeemded to her on the death of Morgan her brother. If by descended, descent in law, without a 
conveyance, is intended, she and Morgan could not have been own sister and brother to John ap 
levan, as tiie lands of Morgan would in that case have gone to John, even under the law of gavelkind, 
then prevailing in Wales. 

" Sir Bobert Owen was M.P. for the Oo. of Merioneth in the 6*^ Pari, of Charles II. (1680-1), 
and for the Oarnarvon Boroughs in the Convention Pari. (1688-9), and in the second (1689-90), 
and third (1691), Parliaments of W". & Mazy. He died M.P. for those Boroughs, 30 March 
169&-9, and was buried at Selattyn, April 11.

Newton Family (p. 191). — ^In reference to the notes on the Newton family, 
I may observe, that an aunt of Sir Isaao Newton's lived at a house in the centre 
of the village of Market Overton, Kutland. Sir Isaac is said to have been a 
frequent visitor at this house, and to have drawn a very large mariner's compass 
on the ceiling of one of the upper rooms. The house is now the property of John 
Wingfield, Esq., of Tickencote, Butland, who, when he restored it a few years ago, 
carefully preserved the ceiling just mentioned. The house is now inhabited oy 
W. Bowe, Esq., surgeon.

The following draft will is copied from a Latin Bible (Biblia cum summariis 
coneordantiis, ete., J. Pinard. M. ccccc. 4°) in the library of the Trinitarian Bible

out ; those within parentheses are underlined or otherwise added, but by the same 
hand; the contracted words are mostly copied at length. The points . . . 
indicate words cut off. On the title page is written : —
